Everton chairman Bill Kenwright says new manager Roberto Martinez is already "in love" with the club.

Martinez is expected to finalise new coaching appointments before then, and Kenwright reckons the Spaniard has already been bitten by the Everton bug.

He told the Liverpool Echo: "Roberto's not patient! He wants to be in there, wants to be with the players, wants to be at it.

"He's excited about the pre-season tours to Austria and America - I've told him to bring us home a trophy. He's in love. He's in love with Everton."
