Besic completes Everton switch

Everton have signed Muhamed Besic on a five-year deal from Hungarian side Ferencvaros for a fee understood to be in the region of 4million.

The 21-year-old, who represented Bosnia and Herzegovina in the World Cup, has been with the Premier League club on their pre-season tour of Thailand and trained with the squad in Bangkok on Saturday.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez told the club's website that he was delighted with Besic's involvement on the trip.

He said: "Mo already feels like part of the squad. It's been so important for him to travel with us, interact with the squad and get to know us all.

\"He trained on Saturday and that was a real positive. He's also getting the right balance of recovering from the World Cup. He's only 21 but it's incredible how these bodies recover.\"

Martinez has also set his sights on Anderlecht forward David Henen and is close to adding the 18-year-old to his squad.

The Spaniard said: \"David is a young man who is someone with a very good future and we want him to be part of our development squad and get into the Under-21s.

\"He's had a rapid rise in his early years. He's only 18 and has attracted a lot of attention, but we need to give him a bit of quiet time to allow him to work on his game and develop as a footballer.\"He has real talent with a view of one day making it into the first team, but that will be down to him and his hard work.\"
