Ronald Koeman sounded his appreciation as Idrissa Gueye scored an impressive long-range goal during Everton training on Thursday morning.

Midfielder Gueye, 26 signed for Everton from Championship side Aston Villa during the summer transfer window when the Toffees activated his £7.1 million release clause.

The club’s official Twitter account posted a short clip which shows midfield anchorman Gueye scoring the impressive goal to his managers approval.

The former Lyon man is not known for his goal coring as he managed to find the net on only one occasion in 38 games during his time at Aston Villa last season.

Gueye has made four appearances in all competitions for Koeman’s side this season with no goal to his name.

The Senegal international has impressed early on in his Goodison Park career as he has already picked up a man of the match award on debut in the 1-1 draw against Tottenham.

Koeman’s side have registered two wins in three games as they sit an impressive fourth early on in the Premier League campaign.

The Merseyside club travel to the Stadium of light on Monday evening to take on their former manager David Moyes.
