New Everton defender Antolin Alcaraz admits that he is grateful to link up with former boss Roberto Martinez after signing a two-year contract with the Toffees.

New Everton signing Antolin Alcaraz has admitted that he is grateful for the chance to continue his career in the Premier League under Roberto Martinez.

The Paraguayan international was a free agent after leaving Wigan Athletic at the end of last season, but linked up with his former boss at the Latics after penning a two-year contract with the Toffees.

"We talked to a lot of clubs but I was always interested in staying in the Premier League," Alcaraz told PA.

"I like this competition and at this moment in my career I thank Everton for giving me this opportunity to continue in the Premier League.

"I know him [Martinez] really well and he knows me very well also. We had a very good relationship in the three years at Wigan and I want to continue that. Nothing is going to change, he is very professional."

The 30-year-old was one of two signings for Everton today, as keeper Joel Robles completed a move from Atletico Madrid.
