Everton sign Lukaku from Chelsea for £28m


Everton have signed Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku for a club record £28m. 

The 21-year-old Belgian World Cup forward, who scored 16 goals on loan at Everton last season, has signed a five-year contract at Goodison Park.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez said: "This signing is not just important for this season. It is a significant day in the history of this football club."

Lukaku joined Chelsea from Anderlecht for £18m in August 2011 but played only 15 games for the club.

After signing his contract at Goodison, Lukaku said: "I'm 21, I need to be playing in a good team. I needed to be in a place that felt right.

"I decided very quickly I wanted to come back. This is the place I belong."

Meanwhile, Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho revealed in his post-match interview after Chelsea 3-1 over Vitesse in a friendly game that the club had to let Lukaku go as he was not 'motivated' to fight for his place.
