New Everton signing Magaye Gueye admits David Moyes was key to decision to leave Strasbourg.

New Everton signing Magaye Gueye admits David Moyes was key to decision to leave Strasbourg.

The highly-rated 20-year-old was also a target of Lyon but the front man said Claude Puel, the boss of the Ligue 1 outfit, wasn't as determined as Moyes to secure his services.

Gueye said: "He (Moyes) has followed me for six months. I have been seen several times with Strasbourg and in the French team.

"I had better feelings with Everton. I know I will get opportunities to play in a great league, which has been my dream since I was a kid.

"I am not scared to join England directly from Strasbourg. I know I will improve. It will just be up to me to prove to the coach I deserve a position in the team."
