United's Moyes returns to Everton for Fellaini

Manchester United FC have snared Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini from Everton FC, the 25-year-old agreeing a deal that reunites him with former manager David Moyes.

Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini has joined Manchester United FC from Everton FC in a deal worth around €32.5m. 

The 25-year-old has put pen to paper on a contract that reunites him with David Moyes, the manager who first brought him to England from R. Standard de Liège in September 2008.

Fellaini, who can operate as a defensive midfielder or a second striker, made 141 Premier League appearances during a five-year association with the Toffees, scoring 25 goals. He enjoyed his most prolific campaign in 2012/13, registering 11 times as Everton finished sixth.

Capped more than 40 times by Belgium since making his international bow in 2007, Fellaini could get his first taste of the UEFA Champions League group stage when United begin their campaign at home to Bayer 04 Leverkusen on 17 September.
