Marouane Fellaini insists being Everton's �15million record signing will not be causing him any sleepless nights.

Fellaini, who signed for the Merseyside club from Standard Liege on the last day of the summer transfer window, is desperate to play against Stoke on Sunday and - despite the price tag - he believes it is money well spent and that he is more than capable of repaying Everton's faith in him.

"I don't feel pressure, it is not for me to feel pressure," he said ahead of a potential Barclays Premier League debut. "I will be out there on the field trying to do my best every time the manager decides to put me in the side - that is all I will be thinking about."

Everton moved for the 20-year-old following his commanding performances for Liege against Liverpool in their Champions League qualifier last month and, although few Everton fans may be aware of the midfielder's talents, he is more than ready to fill any gaps in the supporters' knowledge.

He added: "When you see me on the field you will see what I can offer.

"I am young, I am really really keen to succeed, I have a lot of enthusiasm and I will be trying my absolute best to make an impact.

"I feel very proud to be here, I knew Everton were a top-five club and I was very keen to play in the Premier League, so when I found out they were interested I wanted to come here and show what I can do."
