Everton manager David Moyes has refused to comment on speculation linking the club with Rangers striker Nikica Jelavic.

Reports have suggested the Barclays Premier League are among the front-runners to sign the 26-year-old Croatia international before Tuesday's transfer deadline.

Rangers are thought to value the player at around £8million and have already rejected an offer from West Ham. QPR have also been linked with the forward, who missed Rangers' 4-0 win over Hibernian on Saturday with a virus. When asked directly about Jelavic, Moyes said: "I never talk about players at other clubs, I wouldn't do that."
