Lukaku always confident of returning to Everton

Everton record signing Romelu Lukaku was confident this summer of returning to Goodison Park.

Everton have signed Lukaku from Chelsea for a club-record fee of £28million, with the striker penning a five-year deal.

"For me I decided very quickly I wanted to come back here because it was a good step for me," said the striker.

"Expectations for myself are very high but when you have a manager who wants to push you and the team it is a perfect environment for a young player to grow.

"I am 21, it is time to have a stable career as well so it was important to be somewhere where you are there to win titles.

"I think I can improve in every aspect of the game. My goalscoring record says a lot but if I want to win titles I have to get better in everything."
