Gueye determined to be Everton first-choice

Magaye Gueye is determined to be a first team regular at Everton next season.

He was happy to bide his time last term as he acclimatised to life in England, but now the France Under-21 star is keen to make a genuine impact in the Premier League - starting at Tottenham.

"Next season hopefully I can play more games," Gueye told evertonfc.com. "I think this first year was more about settling in and learning about English football.

"I think I have already got better in my time here. I have got more used to the style of play as it is different from France where the football is not as physical. That is the biggest difference I have had to get used to.

"My objective is to come back and have a really good pre-season, get really fit and strong, impress the manager and get into the team for the first game. I need to get a bit stronger, keep working hard and believe in myself.

"If I am on the pitch then I am happy," he added. "I like it at Everton and I am here for five years. My aim is to play more games now and improve as a player in the English league."
