Cameroon legend Samuel Eto’o has penned a two-year deal with Everton, the club confirmed today.

The 33-year-old spent last season with Chelsea having previously played for Barcelona and Inter Milan amongst others.

On the face of it, Eto’o is a very smart signing given that there was no transfer fee involved, and he will be a strong back up to big money acquisition Romelu Lukaku.

We are very excited and I think Everton is the perfect home for him. The fans will make him ready and feel sharp but we have got to be a bit patient with the fitness levels and make sure he is back to his best.

- Everton boss Roberto Martinez
