Everton were winners on deadline day, despite Marouane Fellaini's sale to Manchester United, as Romelu Lukaku's loan switch from Chelsea will "complete the puzzle", according to Roberto Martinez.

The Toffees boss is pleased with his new signings and expressed his belief that his squad now has the perfect blend.

Everton are yet to lose a game in the Premier League this season, however the side has scored just once in those games and secured only three points with draws against Norwich, West Brom and Cardiff City.

Martinez believes the 20-year-old striker from Stamford Bridge will supply the goals to make Everton contenders in this seasons Premier League campaign.

"The fans realise that and when you see a player arrive who is capable of doing that it excites you. He (Lukaku) could be that little piece which completes the puzzle," said the ex Swansea City manager

"We are all excited about Romelu, without forgetting that Nikica Jelavic and Arouna Kone are very important for us too, but extra competition for places is also important.

"I wouldn't say it was a coup signing him, it was a perfect fit for what we needed. "Romelu is perfect for what we were looking for."

The 40 year-old Toffees boss then concluded: "He's not going to need any settling period in the league, he knows it inside out. "I see him as someone who can come in straight away and hit the ground running."

The Belgian international scored 17 Premier League goals for West Bromwich Albion last season in 35 appearances and Martinez will be hoping that the striker will bring this missing spark to Goodison Park.

Everton fans will have to wait a little longer get their first glimpse of Lukaku in a blue shirt, as the Merseyside club's next match is against Chelsea and he will be ineligible for selection.
