Hitzlsperger thrilled with Everton deal

Thomas Hitzlsperger is delighted with his short-term deal at Everton.

After four weeks training with David Moyes' side in a bid to prove his fitness after a long-term injury, it is a move that thrills the former Aston Villa midfielder.

He told evertontv: "I have been here for four weeks training with the lads and I've really enjoyed it. So I'm delighted we've finally agreed on a contract and I can't wait for the first game.

"I am happy with the way things have developed. In the summer I had just come back from injury and when I first came here and got the opportunity to train with the team I was delighted. It is a good team that has had a good start to the season and it was a great chance for me to get back into Premiership football.

"I am hoping for continued success. The team has started really well and I want to be a part of this team and its success. I want to add some quality to the squad. There is a lot of quality here already but I want to add a little bit and hopefully get some games and play well."
