Nikica Jelavic: Insists he is going nowhere this summer
Everton striker Nikica Jelavic has made it clear he will be at Goodison Park next season after a storming start to life on Merseyside.
The Croatia international has made a massive impact for the Toffees since joining from Rangers on a four-year deal in January, netting 11 goals in 16 games.
His exploits are likely to have alerted other clubs to his talents and the 26-year-old's stock could rise further if he impresses for his country at Euro 2012.
However, Jelavic insists he is going nowhere after settling into life in the North West and wants to score even more goals next term.
"Everything is just great - my first season at Everton couldn't be better," he told the Daily Post.
"I have to say thanks to my team-mates. When I came here I immediately felt like we had known each other for many years.
"I signed a four-year deal and I don't think about going anywhere else.
"I want to become even better and I want to score even more goals next season."
Jelavic admits he was anxious over making the transition to the Premier League following two years in the SPL with Rangers, but has been pleasantly surprised.
"When I signed for Everton I was sure that I would have some problems with the English league which is harder than the Scottish one," he added.
"I didn't know what to expect. I was a little bit afraid that I might have some problems, but that was not the case."
