Fernandes delighted with Everton move

Fernandes started the season on loan at Portsmouth.

He told the Liverpool Echo: “It’s good for me to come in, train again and be able to play. There are no problems now and for me it is wonderful.

“Portsmouth was good to introduce me to the Premiership and I am looking forward to playing more.

“In the beginning it was difficult because I was injured when I went to Portsmouth, so even if I was fit it wasn’t going to be so easy. So if you are injured and you go to play in a different league it is going to be difficult.

“Here I will give everything for the team. I don’t guarantee goals but I guarantee I will work hard. I think the English style suits my game, a lot of players like to go after the ball and win it.”
