Everton confirm Gibson deal

Everton have signed Darron Gibson from Man United for an undisclosed fee, on a contract which runs until the end of the 2015-16 season.

Gibson, 24, has only been a bit-part player at Old Trafford, and made just two starts this season before the club decided to cash in. He was out of contract in the summer, with the Toffees believed to have paid £500,000 with another £1.5 million possible in add-ons.

A Republic of Ireland international with 17 caps, he made 60 appearances for United, scoring 10 goals.

"I can see a hunger,'' manager David Moyes told Everton's official website. "He is young and wants to prove himself."

Gibson, who has a reputation for scoring some spectacular goals, is hoping to bring some much-needed firepower to Everton.

''It's a great club with great fans and hopefully I can improve Everton,'' he told the club's official website. ''I think I'm a goalscoring midfielder and hopefully I can get a few goals.

''I've scored a few long-range shots - I don't think I've scored one inside the box to be honest - and if I score goals it's a bonus for me. I'm just looking to do as well as I can for the team.''

Gibson revealed that Wayne Rooney sold the move to Everton to him: "I was speaking to Wayne about it a bit and after that and coming to see the facilities it was an easy decision. He told me it was a great club and he really enjoyed his time and the people here.

"Having a word with him and people like Tim Cahill and Phil Neville convinced me to come.

"I was very frustrated [at Manchester United]. It was hard for me at times. I think when I did get a chance I did well and obviously I was getting left out afterwards and I was playing one or two games here and there. When Scholesy came back the manager told me I was free to go.

"Everton had shown some interest a month before hand and the gaffer (David Moyes) wanted me in so it went from there. It was very frustrating but I think it was the right time for me to move on and I'm looking forward to my time here. I'm really looking forward to kicking on now.

"When everyone's fit it's a great squad and hopefully me coming in can improve the team a bit and we'll start to kick on from here. I have been at United since I was 15 so this is the first proper move I have had so it is very exciting.

"David Moyes is a great manager and has shown that over the past few years. His teams have been good despite not having a lot of money so I'm really looking forward to working under him.''

Gibson is known for being able to find the net and work the goalkeeper and that is something Everton are crying out for, but he hopes to be able to offer other qualities to the side too.

"I have not had a run of games properly so when I get into the swing of things I can bring a lot of things,'' he said. "It's a great club with great fans and hopefully I can improve Everton.

"I think I'm a goalscoring midfielder and hopefully I can get a few goals. I've scored a few long-range shots - I don't think I've scored one inside the box to be honest - and if I score goals it's a bonus for me. I'm just looking to do as well as I can for the team.''

Gibson also hopes the chance of more regular football will improve his international opportunities, especially with Euro 2012 on the horizon this summer.

"I wasn't playing at United which meant it was hard for the international manger (Giovanni Trapattoni) to pick me,'' he added. "But once I start playing here hopefully he'll have no choice but to pick me.''
