Abdoulaye Doucoure: Everton getting me in prime years

Abdoulaye Doucoure believes Everton are getting him in his prime years.

The 27-year-old has left Watford after four years for Goodison Park.

"I have been waiting a long time to come here and now it has happened so I am very happy," Doucoure told the club's website.

"I am so excited to start.

"I feel at the top of my career at the moment. Mentally, physically, I feel at my best.

"I think Everton is the right place now to have a step up and to keep progressing.

"And with the manager and the team we've got, I think I have plenty of time to progress.

"With Mr Ancelotti here it is a good choice for me.

"I am very excited about the project, we are bringing new players like James and Allan.

"Big players. I want to be part of that project.

"Everton has a big history in English football. When I heard the names of Allan and James joining Everton it was even more exciting to come.

"I did everything in my power to come here as soon as possible.

"It has been a long time [negotiating the transfer this summer] and I am happy to come here in this exciting moment."
