Everton bring in Barry, McCarthy and Lukaku

There were changes aplenty at Everton FC at the end of the transfer window as they signed Romelu Lukaku, Gareth Barry and James McCarthy as Marouane Fellaini exited.

Everton FC moved quickly after the late departure of Marouane Fellaini to Manchester United FC, signing James McCarthy and agreeing the season-long loan of Chelsea FC's Romelu Lukaku and Gareth Barry from Manchester City FC.

Republic of Ireland midfielder McCarthy, 22, arrives in a deal worth a reported €15m, a move that reunites him with the manager, Roberto Martínez, who led him and Wigan Athletic FC to FA Cup glory last season, earning a place in the UEFA Europa League despite relegation. England international Barry, 32, also makes the relatively short trip from elsewhere in the north-west as he arrives from Manchester City FC.

The 20-year-old Lukaku, meanwhile, goes to Goodison Park from Chelsea with Everton hopeful that he can reproduce the form that brought him 17 Premier League goals during a similar spell at West Bromwich Albion FC last term. The Belgium striker has made three appearances for Chelsea this term, missing the decisive penalty in the spot-kick defeat by FC Bayern München in Friday's UEFA Super Cup.

Everton also announced that Victor Anichebe will join West Brom for a fee which could rise to €7m.
