Everton's Theo Walcott thankful for Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger

He will get a chance to say a proper goodbye to Arsenal - where Wenger has told him he is always welcome - when Everton visit the Emirates at the start of next month.

"There are 33 players here at the moment and I think from my point of view that means reducing that squad, although squad numbers are important for me and the football club". The manager is very hungry and it's just what I need.

"It wasn't the way I would have wanted to have left, but knowing it wasn't official yet, that no one knew about it, and I got a sense that people would have been a bit surprised at how quickly it developed, I had to get my stuff very quickly".

The move brings to an end Walcott's 12-year spell at Arsenal, for whom he scored 108 goals in 397 appearances.

"Play to their strengths to get results because results are what keep you in the job and results give you experience and get you in the limelight and allow you to move up the league and get a bigger job", the former Manchester United boss said of Allardyce.

"I wish the club all the best, I want them to develop, I want them to improve". Theo Walcott has not attained the status of the aforementioned quartet, but Everton's new signing is another whose career has worked in this manner.

Several Premier League clubs are monitoring Lennon's situation, and because he is out of contract this summer he could be available for a cut-price fee. "We will find out on Friday".

'With the players that have come in, I feel like the next level can be reached.

"We have looked at an terrible lot, but if I move players out then our financial balances get better".
