Gray: Leaving Bayer Leverkusen for Everton was smooth

Demarai Gray says a move to Everton was easy to make over the summer.

The winger joined Everton for a cut-price fee from Bayer Leverkusen.

Gray told Football Daily: "I would say it [the transfer] was quite smooth.

"Obviously you're aware, as a player, of interest and teams that may be a possibility and it was quite smooth.

"Leverkusen on their behalf made it simple, and the whole transfer was simple.

"That made it a lot easier, I knew of the boys here already from my U21s days. I spoke with the manager.

"He loves coaching, he loves coaching. All-round you have to coach a team and their tactics, but man-management and individual instruction is very good.

"That's done me good, having a manager that has faith and believes in you obviously helps. He's a good manager and I'm enjoying my time."
