According to the Nigerian International who made this known while fielding questions from journalists shortly after a training session ahead of their clash with Watford on Saturday, he said Everton’s offer was too good for him to turn down.

His words:

“I spoke to the manager and Marcel [Brands] and they almost lured me in.” 
“The offer was too attractive for me to turn down. The manager was telling me, ‘There is a spot for you, we will take care of you’. Basically, all the things you want to hear as a player.
