He told evertonfc.com: "I've played against Timmy a few times and I've had to mark him so the banter has been there. He did fall and hurt his foot at our place and I did help him off and we've got on fine.
"He's a nice guy and a very good player. The squad have had a nice little buzz with having him back because he gives us something different. Hopefully I'll be helping him by passing the ball than helping him off the pitch from now on."
