Everton hero Campbell excited by Lukaku deal

Everton hero Kevin Campbell is delighted seeing Romelu Lukaku signed permanently.

Lukaku last week joined the Blues for a club record £28million fee.

Campbell told the Liverpool Echo: "Rom wants to make a name for himself but he was not getting opportunities at Chelsea.

"After doing it for West Brom he came here with a lot more pressure but it's been a marriage made in heaven.

"He's obviously cost big money but that's what you have to pay for these premium guys who can put the ball in the back of the net."

The former Blues striker added: "It's a great piece of business by Roberto Martinez and Bill Kenwright. They can have great pride in landing their number one target.

"Rom's certainly a marquee signing. He's young but proven. Only two players have scored more goals in the Premier League over the past couple of seasons."
