DONE DEAL! Everton confirmed the signing of Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea for £28m [Tweets]

Everton have done it! The Toffees have signed Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea.

After several weeks of speculation, amid rumours of possible moves to the likes of Atletico and Real Madrid, Everton have officially beaten off the competition to land Belgian star Lukaku for a reported £28 million. 

The transfer fee is a massive amount of cash for Everton, as Lukaku becomes the club’s record signing.

The 21-year-old has penned a five year contract at Goodison Park, having spent last season on loan at the Toffees, when he scored 16 goals in all competitions. 

In total, Lukaku has incredibly scored 65 goals in all competitions in his career.

With that said, one suspects the move will be a bitter sweet moment for the striker, who admitted being a diehard Blues fan when he moved to Stamford Bridge from Anderlecht back in 2011.

Aside from Lukaku, Everton have signed Gareth Barry and Muhamed Besic this summer.
