Chairman sad at Cahill's exit
Everton chairman Bill Kenwright has wished Tim Cahill all the best as he prepares to embark on a new career in Major League Soccer.
The Australia international, who played 278 times for the Toffees in a career spanning eight years, ranks as one of manager David Moyes' best buys after his £1.5million move from Millwall.
He completed a move to New York Red Bulls after signing a three-and-a-half-year deal with the Eastern Conference leaders.
"On a personal level, I will miss the first-ever player that David and I went to see together, and the wide-eyed bundle of energy that walked into my office a short time later and told me that Everton was his destiny," Kenwright told Press Association Sport.
"And he now embarks on a new stage of his career with our heartfelt thanks, and of course our real best wishes for his future.
"I can guarantee New York Red Bulls will have many, many admirers cheering them on from across the Ocean. All wearing the Blue of Everton. Thank you Tim."
