Everton have completed the blockbuster signing of James Rodriguez from Real Madrid.

The move reunites Rodriguez with Toffees manager Carlo Ancelotti, who first lured the Colombian to the Spanish capital following his heroics at the 2014 World Cup.

“I am really, really happy to be at this great club, a club with so much history, and here with a manager who knows me really well,” Rodriguez told Everton's official website.

“I’m looking forward to achieving great things here – and winning things, which is what everyone’s aim is.

“I’ve come here to try to improve, to get better. I’ve also come here to help the team to win, to play good football – entertaining football.

“I’m convinced, with Carlo and his technical staff, we can achieve big things and one of the big reasons [I signed] was the presence of Carlo Ancelotti.

“I have enjoyed some great times with him previously at two different clubs. That was a massive reason to come here.”
