Darron Gibson's move from Manchester United to Everton gave the 24-year-old a new lease of life.
At a fee of just £500,000 the Republic of Ireland international could be seen as one of the signings of the season after making an instant reaction at Goodison Park since his January move.
He has already made 12 appearances for Everton despite a few injury knocks, doubling his first team appearances over the past 12 months in just a few short months with Everton.
"I am just enjoying it and I`m in a better mood now, I know that. It is nice to know you`re in with a more-than-likely chance of playing every week, rather than not. Gibson told the Echo.
He continued: "I wasn`t sure what to expect but I`m really enjoying my football. It is a great club.
This weekend will see Gibson come up against his former side for the first time since the move.
The midfielder will have to live with the perception that he was one of the many who failed to make an impact at Old Trafford.
Having been with them since the age of 15, Gibson would have hoped to have made more than just 14 Premier League starts, but at Everton he has been given a real chance to prove himself.
Gibson added: "As a footballer you want to play and when it came down to it, I wasn`t playing as much as I would have liked. That meant I had to move. Some people would say I failed at United and towards the end, I wasn`t playing my best.
"So I`ve come here to start showing people how good a player I am. I wouldn`t say I failed I`d say I never got the chance I wanted."
