Koeman was confirmed as the new Everton manager this week after they finally agreed a deal with the Saints to take him away from St Mary’s.

As expected he has taken some of his backroom staff with him to Merseyside, as his brother Erwin Koeman and Kluitenberg have both followed him to the club.
And commenting on Twitter, Kluitenberg was keen to thank the Southampton fans for the two years he spent at the club, and then tell Everton fans he was looking forward to the new adventure.
Dear fans of @SouthamptonFC thank you all for the excellent cooperation and the great games we experienced together and your kind words ⚽️— Jan Kluitenberg (@jankluit) June 17, 2016
@Everton I look forward to new challenges and achieving objectives where club and supporters will be proud of ...⚪️— Jan Kluitenberg (@jankluit) June 17, 2016
He was not alone in tweeting either, as Koeman also shared his thoughts following his first day in the job.
Koeman and his team now turn their attention to what will be a crucial summer at their new club.
A number of new signings are expected at the club given the huge transfer budget that the Dutchman has reportedly been handed.
First they must work to get the current squad up to scratch, given their poor performances over the past two seasons.
