Jelavic: I did not demand move

Published Add your comment

Nikica Jelavic insists he did not force his transfer to Everton despite claims from Rangers chairman Craig Whyte that he had no choice but to sanction their top goalscorer's exit on transfer deadline day.

The Croatian striker, who netted 17 goals for the Scottish champions this season, moved to the Barclays Premier League club for a fee reported to be around £5.5million.

"My dream was to play in the English Premier League but I never forced my transfer," said Jelavic.
