The Dutchman leaves the St Mary's Stadium with a year remaining on his term there, signing a three-year contract with the Blues that ties him to Goodison Park until 2019.
Koeman's arrival marks the completion of a process that was begun almost as soon as Roberto Martinez was dismissed last month, with the 53-year-old installed as major investor Farhad Moshiri's first choice to lead his new era at Goodison Park.
Everton are believed to have reached a settlement with Southampton of around £5m to release Koeman from the final 12 months of his contract on the south coast and that of his brother, and assistant manager, Erwin plus first team fitness coach Jan Kluitenberg although their appointments have yet to be confirmed.
De Telegraaf in the Netherlands said the deal was the result of tough negotiations between Moshiri on the one hand and Saints CEO Ralph Kruger and director of development, Les Reed, on the other.
Koeman's agent Rob Jansen held productive talks with Moshiri and Chairman Bill Kenwright on Koeman's behalf the Friday before last but the manager wasn't able to put pen to paper on a deal until compensation matters had been ironed out between the two clubs and he returned from a second post-season break.
Media reports have also suggested that Saints insisted on a "no poaching" agreement from Everton but this would not have been legally binding and Sky Sports' sources say no such "gentleman's agreement" was part of the deal.
Initially, Kruger and Reed were thought to be confident that they could persuade Koeman to stay at St Mary's Stadium, at least to see out the final year of his contract, but the lure of a significantly increased salary (believed to be £6m per year), a reported £100m transfer war chest, and the promise in Moshiri's ambitious plans appear to have proved decisive.
“I am very excited to be Everton manager," Koeman said on his appointment. "I believe in the Club, in the team, in the fans and in our ability to achieve things in the future.
“Everton is a club with a great history and real ambition and it is a proud feeling for me to be part of what we want to go and do, together with the Chairman and Farhad Moshiri.
“I am looking forward to meeting everyone at the Club and to preparing for a big season in the Premier League.”
Club chairman Bill Kenwright said of the Blues' new hire:
“We are really pleased to have secured the man who was our No 1 target from the moment we set out to appoint a new manager.
“Ronald has such a strong track record in the game, instantly commanding respect for what he achieved as a player and for his qualities and accomplishments as a manager.
“The hopes and aspirations that we all have as Evertonians are with him, as is our total support at Board, shareholder and fan level.”
A world-class defender in his playing days, Koeman starred for all three of the Netherlands' big clubs — Ajax, PSV and Feyenoord — at Barcelona in Johan Cruyff's "Dream Team" of the early 1990s, and on the international stage for his country with whom he won the European Championships in 1988.
As manager, he has managed six teams in the Eredivisie and also had stints in Portugal and Spain before he came to England to continue the renaissance of Southampton begun by Mauricio Pochettino — despite seeing some of that club's best players sold over the past two summer windows.
He led the Saints to 7th place in his first season and then 6th place this term, finishing just three points off the top four but securing Europa League qualification for the second year running.

Excellent work carried out by EFC here; going about their business in a stealth-like fashion. Well done to all involved and I never doubted this would happen for a minute, now Moshiri is involved.
Well done and here's to an exciting summer of transfer activity and a very successful Premier League campaign. COYBB!!

I wouldn't mind Forster and Van Dijk from Southampton and possibly Wijnaldum from Newcastle. Then we need 2 strikers if Lukaku goes and I personally would like Batsuyi and 1 other.
My hope is we now play football at a higher tempo and we have more than one way of playing. Here's to an interesting few months anyway, good luck Ronnie.

Keep your pressers crisp!
Keep your sheets clean.
Keep Lukaku scoring.
Keep Lukaku's and his Dad's gobs shut.
Keep an eye on the Academy.
That's not bad for starters.
22 Posted 14/06/2016 at 12:51:28
Not since the eighties have I been more excited about the coming season(s).

24 Posted 14/06/2016 at 12:56:13
25 Posted 14/06/2016 at 12:57:41
So have we!
Let's get started.
26 Posted 14/06/2016 at 12:58:01
Here's hoping for some real success, it won't be easy, it never was, but I hope to see a team that is fully focused on winning football matches on a regular basis. The first season will be difficult for a variety of reasons but surely we can't be left as flat as often as we have been in the last 18 months?
27 Posted 14/06/2016 at 12:59:38
In the new Moshiri world statements appear to be brief and to the point, even BK's seems pretty low key. All seems pretty businesslike though...
I don't expect we'll hear a peep now and then out of nowhere a new signing will appear out of the blue; my gut reaction is it'll be a big splash and a statement of intent, I don't think we're mucking about anymore.
Good luck Mr Koeman.
29 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:01:08
31 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:05:30
Surely it should include the word 'Intensity' too, please!
32 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:05:57
Let's all play Footy Manager over the Euros and see what we end up with, can't wait.

Here's to Everton.

36 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:09:01
Welcome to Everton, Mr Koeman! Exciting times ahead.
Right... that's the manager sorted, so what players are we signing? Ha ha! Loving this.
37 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:13:37
RK is our manager now and we should all get behind him and back his decisions. He chose us over Southampton because we are a better club and offered him more money. He is no mug. He chose us because he can see we are a top club with renewed ambition and a great history.
Such exciting times ahead for us all. Welcome to RK and well done to the Everton top brass for getting their man.
38 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:14:24
39 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:14:38

41 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:15:59
Onward and upward we all hope and sooner than later to get to the level we all want.
Everton were crap in so many games last season, it was unbelievable... so hopefully Big K will reverse that trend.
42 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:16:19
43 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:16:26
Here's hoping you can make a real impact and have a very successful campaign in 16/17.
Well done to all at EFC for making this happen.
Really looking forward to the new season and the fixtures are out tomorrow too.

Look forward to seeing who he signs over the summer. Start signing players now and once the Euros is over get the rest of the new players in and settled for the start of the new season, no last minute deadline day panic signings please

Now we wait on our summer transfers. Get ready for all the Southampton players to be linked with us.
I'm not excepting the tittle I'm not expecting champions league. I'm just expecting watching us play some nice footy, take down the red shites and be a threat to everyone in the league. COYB!!
53 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:28:22
I wish RK all the best and hope he can bring success back to GP.
54 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:28:53
Lukaku to United, Rooney plus cash in return
Smart business that Ron!
55 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:31:17
56 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:36:31
I would agree with the Stones to city and we get Hart plus cash, but the Lukaku deal? Do you really want Rooney who is well past his best coming back. Haven't we moved on from these kind of signings?
57 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:39:06
I've been watching Roberto on ESPN coverage of the Euros, nice fella but Christ does he talk some shite. All I can think of watching him is Baines rolling his eyes in the derby, it's easy to see why.
58 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:40:15
Hopefully it means he's been given the backing to get us challenging for Champions League football quickly.
59 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:42:57
60 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:51:57
Now for a new stadium (on the docks)......
Can't wait to see who we bring in and kick out!
61 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:57:22
Interesting to see what Ron does with the current squad and even more interesting to see if the talked about Moshiri money now appears and we sign a few.
62 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:58:35
Too many players at Goodison over the last few months have shown too little respect to the fans as they amble around without much desire I suppose that's what I meant even if they should be proud to be employed by Everton FC, no matter how high or low the wages may be.
63 Posted 14/06/2016 at 13:58:52
64 Posted 14/06/2016 at 14:02:50
Well done, Mr Moshiri, you went after your man and got him. Onwards and upwards!!!
65 Posted 14/06/2016 at 14:02:51
Let the summer transfers begin! Hopefully we'll nab a few astute buys instead of following the crazy transfer market standards.
66 Posted 14/06/2016 at 14:09:14
I do happen to agree with you views on the transfer market; we still have to cut our cloth accordingly until our commercial side starts bringing in serious money.
67 Posted 14/06/2016 at 14:09:17
68 Posted 14/06/2016 at 14:16:35
We have 1 sub-standard goalkeeper, no right back cover (aside from 2 or 3 promising youngsters), no left midfielders and our only decent striker wants to leave.
The rest of the squad are all out of shape and have all just been part of a coup to play badly on purpose, so that the previous manager would be fired.
Good luck, Ron!
69 Posted 14/06/2016 at 14:23:43
Clear out the over rated, bring on the youngsters and buy four or five players of genuine quality. Then soon we will be challenging for honours. It's no longer a dream.
70 Posted 14/06/2016 at 14:27:03
71 Posted 14/06/2016 at 14:37:10
A tad cynical I may be but unfortunately that is the nature of the game today as I have said before, contracts mean nothing any more, loyalty??, 'pull ze ozzer one,it has on it bells', I guess if he can re float our sinking ship and motivate the players who want to stay then he will be welcome.
As for the likes of Stones, Mirallas, and, to a much lesser extent, Lukaku, who yesterday played his usual erratic game v Germany, only time will tell. but as with our new boss money will be a deciding factor.
72 Posted 14/06/2016 at 14:41:45
Looking forward to the new season.

About time a proper reporter delved into the lies and deals this fake has been involved in, especially what part "Sir" Phillip Green has played in fleecing our club like BHS. We've flogged off the club shop, marketing, training ground and probably Goodison Park itself, seeing Kenwright's failed attempt to build offices on our land which turned out to belong to a bank.

You made me smile and if you missed it before, its about Moshiri's business partner who I seem to remember being rumoured to follow him to Goodison so see if this makes you squirt something else...
81 Posted 14/06/2016 at 14:52:39
Like some, not my first choice, but I wouldn't have been disappointed with any of the candidates linked as long as we steered clear of ALL of the British ones!!
A player I loved watching with a hell of a reputation in the game. Here's hoping he delivers.
Welcome Mr Koeman.
83 Posted 14/06/2016 at 15:04:34
84 Posted 14/06/2016 at 15:05:36
New manager appointment, well handled (all done quietly and effectively) - tick.
Now for the rest:
older players to be going, £100 million to be splashed, Stones and Rom situations to be sorted - my pen is hovering;
new dock stadium to be announced - my pen is hovering;
Phil W to piss on our chips - ... (sorry, Phil, I actually enjoy your posts usually).
85 Posted 14/06/2016 at 15:11:31
The "warchest" is one that worries me, but if we get Monchi unveiled next with the new club structure finalized, that will be less of a worry. I can't see us spending $100m every time we change managers without getting into trouble with FFP. Really looking forward towards the DoF appointment and the direction of our transfer activity.

And while you are at it..... big Vic Wanyama to replace McCarthy or Besic.
90 Posted 14/06/2016 at 15:37:55
Koeman's priorities should be, get rid of the dead wood and get the squad super fit.
Leicester's conversion from odds on relegation candidates to champion's in one season, 'with a manager that was sacked by Greece,' show's what can be achieved with hard work, believe and a solid system.
I hope we buy class player's now and not more journey men. Is this the turning point we have been waiting for? No more false dawn's Coyb.
91 Posted 14/06/2016 at 15:39:23
Wedon't have to splash the cash just because we can.
92 Posted 14/06/2016 at 15:41:42
After the Chelsea match, we had clearly out thought and out played them. The manager was under heavy criticism and widely expected to be sacked if we had not won. But we won.
So when asked, what did you expect the chairman to say. Well that was all down to the players because the manager is still useless and will be gone at the end of the season. Course not! He has to back the guy publically even if in private it was if I am still around in 12 months time then I do not want to be going to my grave with my beloved Everton having been relegated.
So criticise him for many things, but being effusive to the media about one of his staff after a good performance is the correct PR response. And this is a guy who knows how to play the media.
93 Posted 14/06/2016 at 15:43:14
Two bits of bad news for Ronald to confront after last night's Italy v Belgium game.
1. Lukaku's transfer value went down about £2m for every useless touch he made in the game. So that would be about £10m then!
2. Pelle's stock, and I expect asking price, will have risen markedly after an exemplary centre forward performance.
94 Posted 14/06/2016 at 15:44:14
95 Posted 14/06/2016 at 15:46:20
Tell Lukaku he is training with the reserves on his return unless he honours his contract in the way we expect.
Let Stones go to City get Van Dyck and Forster with the fee and right away we have solved our defensive problems with the addition of our new managers tactics of course.
96 Posted 14/06/2016 at 15:48:38
Please sell Lukaku, McGeady and Kone.
97 Posted 14/06/2016 at 15:49:50
He'll have seen how EFC have better resisted that in the past and possibly thought he had the funds to both build a better side and keep more of a side together that would give him a crack at the top 4.
98 Posted 14/06/2016 at 15:52:54
99 Posted 14/06/2016 at 15:59:09
I, for one, am pleased he's here wanted him from the start, and am glad I avoided the pessimism from some posters on here for at least a few days.
It really does feel like a New Day is dawning let's all now believe! If we do it may just happen.
Welcome to our world Ronald don't let us down.
101 Posted 14/06/2016 at 16:04:52
Let's remember too that despite Lukaku's obvious limitations he is a very, very good goalscorer and while we can blame him for the semi-final to a degree, without him we may have been playing in the fucking Championship next season with some twat like Warnock as our manager. Let's not be too hasty with Lukaku, he's a young lad who was a member of an underachieving team last season due to a hopelessly out of his depth manager trying to play a system that was systemically obsolete and to which nobody was suited or in tune and yet the lad still scored 25 goals.
The new kid on the block, Vardy, is no great shakes as a 'footballer' either and Rashford's first touch makes Lukaku's look good. Get Pelle in if RK wants him but there is no harm in having two 20 goal strikers in a squad is there?
102 Posted 14/06/2016 at 16:06:29
I don't agree that we should sell Stones and certainly not to another Premier League club; I'm sure RK can turn him into a world class player.
103 Posted 14/06/2016 at 16:06:35
It was Loise Jordan who sang Let The Good Times Roll, a Number One in 1947.

I'm pleased for us but we're Everton so humility vice Chelsea like arrogance for me.
113 Posted 14/06/2016 at 16:36:54
....And it was a stance which only strengthened when Southampton made us look ridiculous the following month at GP and were plain robbed.
On 5th March, we lost three points in the space of 12 minutes, but probably achieved more in the long run as it represented the beginning of RM's terminal decline.
This appointment shows that Moshiri is the real deal and we truly are entering a new era.
114 Posted 14/06/2016 at 16:45:11
115 Posted 14/06/2016 at 16:45:29
Yet many things wont change. We will go to the games and hope as ever that now is our time. Celebrate new players and argue over those that have either gone or stayed.
Winning at home and being sent home singing will be our first hope. Winning at home and playing joined up stuff will be our second.
Away trips leaving us always with a good shout of victory and being able to boast a team of top class players to sing about whilst waiting for our new 'Goodison on the Water' to be redied.
Domestic titles and cups to be in with a shout for as well as those euro nights out that end in far away places contesting a final.
The dream is the same but can our new mates Mozza and Big Ron deliver and turn dreams into reality.
I have the feeling that at last we just may.

Moshiri and Koeman both have their own agendas which is success at any cost. Moshiri because he wants a return on his investment, Koeman because he wants the Barcelona job.
BK and his amateurs will have no place in this new order, neither will substandard players. Success, on and off the field, will be the driving force. The winds Ã¶f change are blowing.
126 Posted 14/06/2016 at 18:21:25
To crib a cracking headline from last week..
Are we Koeman? Or are we Danka btu ?
127 Posted 14/06/2016 at 18:22:14
On the one hand, we poach from a club we have good terms with on the other a coach that is a serial Judas when it comes to how loyal or long he will stay.
Is that the new Everton Way? Disloyal to loyal players and friends. Oh sorry... I forgot, it's just business.
128 Posted 14/06/2016 at 18:25:15
129 Posted 14/06/2016 at 18:26:10
He never said anything about us first getting 40 points
Looks like we are moving forward
130 Posted 14/06/2016 at 18:27:17
"When Ronnie met Jurgy" look out for the (over)reactions from Klopp and the reaction from Koeman at the end
131 Posted 14/06/2016 at 18:46:30
I have a strange feeling we'll be singing either song this season. ;-)
132 Posted 14/06/2016 at 18:49:02
133 Posted 14/06/2016 at 19:00:10
The potential for us now is immense. If Koeman can finally sort the defence out and get rid of the players who really don't want to be here and replace them with quality then happy days. Obviously nothing is guaranteed but I haven't been this excited for the prospects of our great club for many a year. Roll on the new season.
By the way, I have been pissing myself laughing at all the RS comments on social media. It's amazing how all of a sudden they have become obsessed with our business. Ha ha they are sitting themselves that we are on the way back. Long may it continue.
134 Posted 14/06/2016 at 19:19:11
Looking forward to the summer activity, and hope he can build every transfer window over next 4+ years. Fingers crossed the motto will mean what it says.

Anyone else notice that the Koeman interview on Everton tv wasn't in this country? I think that was filmed a few days ago on his hols.
138 Posted 14/06/2016 at 19:48:40
But all in all, nothing but Blue Skies from now on!
139 Posted 14/06/2016 at 19:49:56
New song for Everton: 'Koeman, let the good times roll.'
140 Posted 14/06/2016 at 20:03:50
Spotted at Finch Farm earlier and Koeman known to be a fan.
141 Posted 14/06/2016 at 20:08:04
I'm not expecting signings until after that point...
142 Posted 14/06/2016 at 20:15:52
We didn't 'poach' their manager. Everything was done above board and with the consent of Southampton. They could've said "No"; Koeman could have said "No". It was not an illegal approach.
And yes, maybe one day Koeman will be attracted to another project... but let's show him some backing whilst he is our manager.

Another player I wouldn't mind to bolster our striking options is Huntelaar. I think he's been released by Schalke now and to add quality I think he'd be a great signing. IF we lost Lukaku though we would need another striker.
I can't wait to see what Koeman has got up his sleeve players wise. I just hope he gets the required quality in and kicks us on. For his first season, a push for Europe through the league and a cup win would be nice.
Welcome Ron and all the best fella!

Koeman's joined the Blues, We ain't gonna loose,
Cos we're Everton, yes we're Everton.
The Reds will scream and moan man,
Cos we got Ronald Koeman,
Cos we're Everton, yes we're Everton every day.
Feel free to add. ðŸ˜‡

Well said. Kenwright also wanted Moyes back apparently. Now he's gushing about "our" first choice. What a two faced fraud he is. He almost destroyed Everton sacrificing them to his massive ego.

I chuckled though, thanks.

Aidy, Draxler would be brilliant and he's only 22-23. Like you said he can play in more than one position. He's the next Tony Kroos.
154 Posted 14/06/2016 at 22:20:44
Of course, to hold that view you probably need some perspective about our players and managers moving onto what they perceive to be bigger clubs. You don't have to like it, you just can't demonise them.

Witsel - Zenit
Hulk - Zenit
Milik - Ajax
Embolo - Basel
Draxler - Wolfsberg
Koulibaly - Napoli
Shaw - Man utd
Hamsik - Napoli
The value is in the dutch and french leagues. Spain, Germany (now) Italy and England, you're paying over the odds. There will no doubt be a few people we haven't heard of unless you've played footy manager (youri Tielemans, Denis Praet, etc) that will come up.
Top and bottom is, unless we're another leicester, we've got to buy big to let people know we're back. I think a few marquee signings would put us on the map and other big names would follow.

Lots to sort out with players leaving and who to bring in.
First get the lads fit and organised please.
No doubt there will be many new arrivals and it will be interesting to see who he can entice without the offer of European football. Obviously his name and reputation wont do him no harm
I hope he clears out the midfield Barry is coming to an end and McCarthy just offers nothing. Sorts out organises and strengthens the defence and decides on the best form of attack options.
Very exciting times ahead I feel but he will need time, so lets not expect too much too soon.

A new goalie is essential also, perhaps two. New medical and physio staff are a must, as well as conditioning and fitness coaches to get all the lads into shape.
And the new stadium, let's not forget that.

Feels weird to have what I have always wanted - the blues sat at the top table again.
I used to look at the so called big clubs with envy, mixed with relief that we hadn't sold out soul, heart and integrity for bought success. Now Ronald has accepted his project its a case of enjoy the ride.......after all, it's about winning at any cost, something that's been missing at quaint old Everton for some time.
It'll be wonderful to go to Anfield and not fear failure.

I'm quite partial to a bit of Bonnie Tyler and this cracking chorus:
