So Royston Drenthe (Roy to his mates) is the man to replace Mikel Arteta. He has got pedigree so let's hope he shows us what he can do.
Roy thinks the English game suits him. So does David Moyes
Royston said:'I think that my qualities are English qualities, the way I play football.
'I have technique and I like to work hard. I think this competition is a perfect competition for me.
'The Spanish league was a good league but different. It is not so fast, it is slow.
'Here it goes fast and I think that is more my style of play.'
'It was on the last day but I am feeling really happy, all my family is happy and I think I can do a really good job at Everton.
'I think it is a good team and it is good for my future. I am glad to be here.
'It has been a really difficult month for me, training hard with Real Madrid but not playing with the team. That kind of thing is hard for a player.'
Moyes said "Royston is explosive and hopefully he'll give us a bit of that pace. It's something new for him to come to England but we will give him time. We needed to try and find something extra for us.
