Fellaini confident of making impression

Marouane Fellaini insists being Everton's £15million record signing will not be causing him any sleepless nights.

Fellaini signed for the Merseyside club from Standard Liege on the last day of the summer transfer window and is desperate to play against Stoke at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday.

And despite the price tag, he believes it is money well spent and that he is more than capable of repaying Everton's faith in him.

"I don't feel pressure, it is not for me to feel pressure," he said ahead of a potential Premier League debut.

"I will be out there on the field trying to do my best every time the manager decides to put me in the side - that is all I will be thinking about."

Everton moved for the 20-year-old following his commanding performances for Liege against Liverpool in their Champions League qualifier last month and, although few Everton fans may be aware of the midfielder's talents, he is more than ready to fill any gaps in the supporters' knowledge.

He added: "When you see me on the field you will see what I can offer.

"I am young, I am really really keen to succeed, I have a lot of enthusiasm and I will be trying my absolute best to make an impact.

"I feel very proud to be here, I knew Everton were a top-five club and I was very keen to play in the Premier League, so when I found out they were interested I wanted to come here and show what I can do."

Everton's fifth-placed finish last term saw them miss out on the opportunity to bring Champions League football to Goodison Park, but Fellaini is confident that when he has settled on Merseyside, the Toffees will be more than capable of securing a top-four place this season.

And he is hoping that his arrival in English football will herald the beginning of a new era of Belgian players plying their trade in the Premier League.

He said: "The Champions League question is tough to answer on my first day here but we will be working as hard as we possibly can so why not?

"I have come here to do well - I want to succeed and when I integrate into the squad and the team I will hopefully be able to answer that question a bit better.

"The Premier League is popular all over the world and there are not too many Belgians around but I am here now and let's hope we can start making a trend out of it."
