Everton signing Alex Iwobi seeking clean slate

Everton signing Alex Iwobi hopes he can shake off the "youngster tag" he had at Arsenal.

Nigeria international Iwobi left his boyhood club on deadline day when Everton paid 34m for his signature.

And Iwobi wants to make a name for himself at Goodison Park.

He told the club's website: "The manager was telling me, 'There is a spot for you, we will take care of you'. Basically, all the things you want to hear as a player.

"I always had that youngster tag at Arsenal, so hopefully with this move I am able to make a name for myself in the Premier League and create history with Everton."
