A new era at Goodison Park can begin after Ronald Koeman was finally confirmed as Everton's manager.
The Dutchman had enjoyed two excellent seasons with Southampton and would have had a European campaign on his agenda in the forthcoming campaign but he found it impossible to turn down the overtures of Everton's major investor Farhad Moshiri.
Koeman has signed a three-year contract, worth £6million per season, and he will be given the biggest transfer kitty in Everton's history to revamp a squad that failed to fulfil its potential under Roberto Martinez.
Martinez was sacked on May 12 after results had spiralled and Koeman quickly became the prime target for Moshiri, who acquired a 49.9 per cent controlling stake in Everton on February 27 and has been determined to make a statement.
