Marouane Fellaini is overjoyed to join Manchester United from Everton on transfer deadline day.

Marouane Fellaini has revealed that he is "very happy" to have signed for Manchester United.

The Belgium international midfielder joined the Red Devils from Everton late on Monday night for an undisclosed fee.

"I'm very, very happy," he told MUTV. "It's a big moment for me. I waited for a long time, I've worked hard for this and I'm very happy to join this big club, this great club. I hope to do everything for this club."

"I am thrilled to sign for Manchester United. I have known the manager (David Moyes) for many years now and I have a lot of respect for his way of working. When I was given the opportunity to work with him again, I jumped at the chance.

"I had a fantastic time at Everton and I'd like to thank all the fans and staff there for everything they have done for me. But being a Manchester United player is something that every player dreams of and I believe that I can make a real contribution to the team's efforts to win trophies in the future."

United are reported to have paid Everton a transfer fee of £27.5m.
