Everton boss Roberto Martinez is adamant that Romelu Lukaku's attitude has not changed since his permanent move to the club.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez has insisted that there has not been a change in attitude in striker Romelu Lukaku since his permanent move to the club.

The Belgium international has struggled to find his best form since his £28m transfer from Chelsea in the summer as he has notched just two goals this season.

However, Martinez is adamant that the 21-year-old is fully focused on getting back to his best at Goodison Park.

"Looking at that it could be a concern but looking at Rom, I can guarantee you there is no concern his mind set has changed," Martinez told reporters.

"Yes, he was trying to impress and find a permanent move, now his focus is winning games and winning trophies.

"He has become the most important player for Belgium. He has different goals and different targets, he's not in a position where he has got no challenge left, it is not that. Rom is very much focused and is ready to have a very strong season."

Everton face Aston Villa in their Premier League clash later today.
