Everton's summer signing Leandro Rodriguez is keen on improving his game in England after completing his dream move to Goodison Park.

The 22-year-old defender moved from River Plate Montevideo last week to the Blue-half of Merseyside and he says there’s no doubt that he'll enjoy playing alongside proven Premier League talents.

“I watched players like Romelu Lukaku in Uruguay, so I am very happy to be able to play with players like that,” Rodriguez said.

"I don’t think there’s any doubt that I’ll enjoy playing with these players - I’m somebody that likes to get involved with my teammates.

“It’s a big dream to come to a large club like Everton. It’s also a very big responsibility but I am very confident in my abilities.

“I think the coach and I enjoy the same type of football and I’m going to give my best efforts for the club. Also, the people in the club will give me confidence to play.”
