Everton midfielder Davy Klaassen has said he now feels ‘at home’ at the club and he’s looking forward to that paying its own dividends next season.

The Dutch international is now looking forward to the return of pre-season training in July and he was quick to concede that his debut year at Goodison Park was a disappointment. Following his arrival from Ajax for a reported £23.6million over the summer, the 25-year-old only made ten starting appearances for us, with an additional six from the bench, but only three of those starts came in the Premier League itself and he was obviously hoping to have a much greater impact than that.
Speaking to the Official Site as he reflected on his first year here, the attacking midfielder was hoping that having now settled with the group and in England, he could really show fans what he was capable of and start justifying his fee to them.
“For the team, we want to finish higher than this season – and I want to play as much as possible. We have a vacation now and I will relax for a couple of weeks but then start training to come back in top condition. That is my goal and everybody’s goal, so there is going to be good competition for places.”
“My overall experience at Everton has been good…the Club is excellent and the people are very nice. It is an ambitious club and I 100 percent enjoy being here. I feel at home and am determined to play more for the team.”
Those words certainly went over well with the fanbase and the vast majority are hoping he can now hit the ground running next season and enjoy a better season on a personal, as well as, club front.
Great attitude …Had a difficult season …But wants to stay and prove his worth! ???? …Come on Davy!!! …NilSatisNisiOptimum ✊????

He looks for space. Something weve not seen since Osman played.
Very hopeful Davy gets a chance in the right sort of Everton.
