David Moyes broke Everton's transfer record to bring Marouane Fellaini to Goodison Park on transfer deadline day in September 2008.
Everton held off interest from Aston Villa and Spurs to win the race for the Belgian midfielder's signature.
Costing over £12m when he arrived from Standard Liege, Fellaini took time to settle in at Goodison Park, but once he did, the towering Belgium international never looked back.
Adding a physical presence to the Blues' side and looking very comfortable in possession, Marouane Fellaini announced his arrival in the Premiership with nine goals in his first season with Everton.
Summer 2009 was a hard time for Fellaini, as he lost a lot of weight following a virus, but he bounced back to recapture his form and had David Moyes purring about his performances, declaring him the best midfielder in the Premiership after a great goal at Sunderland on Boxing Day 2009.
Marouane Fellaini continued his great form for the Blues until injury forced him out of the Merseyside Derby at Anfield in January and a seriously damaged ankle kept him out for the rest of the 2009.10 season.
A real favourite of Evertonians and cult hero-in-waiting, Marouane Fellaini is at the heart of Everton Football Club.
