Pranjic hopeful over Toffees

Wing-back would be 'honoured' to play for Everton

Danijel Pranjic: Expecting some concrete developments over a possible switch to Everton

Croatia international wing-back Danijel Pranjic is expecting 'some concrete developments' in the near future over a possible move to Everton.

The 31-year-old claims he had been close to completing a deal to the Premier League outfit in January and he is now a free agent after leaving Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

Amid reports left-back Leighton Baines could leave Goodison Park, it appears Toffees boss David Moyes, who watched Pranjic at the Euro 2012 clash between Croatia and Spain, is reviving his bid to bring in the wing-back.

Pranjic, who is on holiday with his family, told Sportske Novosti: "I am honoured that such a successful coach wants to sign me, and would be honoured to play for a club like Everton with such a rich history.

"I'm hungry to play again, to fight with my team-mates for success, to play for the fans. I missed all that sitting on the bench at Bayern."

Pranjic, who has also been linked with clubs in Netherlands, Russia, Turkey, France and Italy, added: "I'm hungry to play again, to fight with my team-mates for success, to play for the fans. I missed all that sitting on the bench at Bayern.
