It’s a great feeling to be back. I’m excited, I cannot wait to meet the lads, get on the training pitch and then get on the pitch to play. I’m ecstatic – I just cannot wait to get back playing

This football club should be winning trophies and we’re taking huge steps to being involved and trying to win trophies. That would be my pinnacle, winning trophies with Everton
