Arouna Kone vows to show the "best" of him for Everton this season after overcoming a knee injury.

Arouna Kone has insisted that he is determined to make his mark at Everton after a lengthy absence with a knee injury.

The 30-year-old's move from Wigan Athletic to Goodison Park last year was hampered after he suffered the problem, which required surgery.

Kone told the club's official website: "For me, it's now about working hard and making sure I come back at my top level of form so fans can actually see something of the real Arouna Kone, the best Arouna Kone.

"It's going to mean an awful lot to me to wear that shirt next season because I've not yet written any history, I've not made my mark on Everton or created my own chapter of the story that is this club."

Kone spent a season playing under Roberto Martinez at Wigan before joining the Spaniard on Merseyside.
