Former Kilmarnock winger Michael Kennedy is excited about his move to Everton.

Kennedy has set his sights on following fellow Kilmarnock old boy Steven Naismith into the Everton first-team - but knows he will have to be patient to achieve his goal.

"It feels brilliant to be an Everton player because it's a massive, massive team," the youngster told evertontv. "Obviously I've followed in Naismith's footsteps [by coming here]. He started at Kilmarnock as well so it's good for myself to follow in his footsteps.

"I've watched him since I was a young boy, since I was about 10. I've always watched him and I think he's brilliant.

"I can't wait to move down and get started now."
