Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell reveals that he is ready to replace Mikel Arteta.

Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell has revealed that he is ready to fill the void left by the departed Mikel Arteta.

Spaniard Arteta left Goodison Park in a deadline day transfer to Arsenal, leaving Toffees manager David Moyes little time to purchase a replacement.

As a result, 20-year-old Rodwell has spoken of his determination to claim the position vacated by his former teammate.

"Mikel is a great player. He's a good lad as well and he will be sorely missed," Rodwell told the club's official website.

"It's a good opportunity for him, so we all wish him the best. But we've got a lot of young players who can fill in. I'm ready to step up and fill his boots, definitely."

Rodwell made 28 appearances for Everton last season.
