The Dutch international midfielder is due to complete an £8m switch from Twente in the next 24 hours and said: “It’s a very nice step to move to the Premier League. “My qualities can be fully expressed there. I’m a box-to-box player so that fits in England.
“Everton is a good club who always fights for the European spots. They have always been a good club to join and they came faster than I expected because I only expected to go in the summer at the earliest.”
Leroy Fer set to sign for Everton FC from FC Twente.
Fer added: “I don’t feel pressure because of that price tag. But I’m proud that I have that kind of price tag set on me. "I have only played for one-and-a-half years at Twente so the fact that Everton have come in for me so quickly shows the confidence they have in me. That feels good.”
