Everton boss David Moyes believes Leroy Fer will prove an exciting young addition to the Barclays Premier League.

The Toffees announced on Monday they had agreed an £8.6million deal with FC Twente for the midfielder, who was undergoing a medical while Moyes conducted his press conference. Fer, 23, is nicknamed 'The Bouncer' because of his combative style in the middle of the park and is poised to become Everton's first signing of the January transfer window.

Moyes said: "He's someone who we've liked for a long time. He's young and he's certainly an up-and-coming prospect, which we like the sound of. He is somebody who we think can help us."
