Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini insists he would have not signed a new five-year contract had he not been convinced about the club's ambition.

The sale of playmaker Mikel Arteta to Arsenal in the summer and on-going, long-standing attempts to sell the Toffees have led to some disquiet among some supporters. A second march by fans group Blue Union is planned ahead of this weekend's home match with Wolves.

But Fellaini said despite interest from other sides he wanted to repay the faith of manager David Moyes and the club. The 23-year-old said: "If Everton didn't have ambition I wouldn't have signed here."
