Everton attacker Naismith: I spoke with Martinez about Wigan

Everton attacker Steven Naismith is confident he has the backing of new manager Roberto Martinez.

The former Rangers ace spoke with Martinez when he was in charge of Wigan Athletic before signing for Everton.

"Fortunately for me I actually spoke to the Roberto before I signed for Everton and that gave me an insight that he was interested in me," Naismith told the Liverpool Echo.

"To be honest I already had my heart set on Everton at that point, just from seeing everything at the club. I thought it was the club for me and I still think that now."
