The 33-year-old former Holland international has signed a three-year contract and will be reunited with Koeman for a third time in his career.

“I’m very happy – things have moved very fast over the last couple days,” the Dutch goalkeeper told evertontv.

“He [Koeman] has come to Everton and he called me a few days after asking if I was willing to follow him. It wasn’t difficult to make that choice.

“He’s one of the best coaches – he’s straight talking, he’s fair and he has confidence in me which counts as well.

“I’ve been here [in England] for a couple of seasons and I love the Premier League. It’s fantastic that I can stay.”
