Aaron Lennon has admitted that he had been hoping all summer that a permanent move to Everton would go through.
Lennon, who had spent 10 years with Spurs, says that he felt relieved to become an Everton player on a long-term basis.
"It's an unbelievable feeling, a lot of people know it's the move I wanted and from the first time I got here, it felt like home," the 28-year-old told Everton's official website.
"I was just hoping it got done throughout the summer, I was just waiting, waiting. Yesterday was a great moment for me to finally become a full time Everton player.
"The loan spell was great for me. I enjoyed the whole feel of everything and the reception from everyone to do with the club. I felt so welcomed and I was just hoping throughout the whole summer that this one got done - and thankfully it did."
Lennon scored two goals in 14 appearances for Everton last season.
