Everton boss David Moyes admits David Weir had a big say in his signing of Nikica Jelavic.
The Croat has been a revelation since his arrival in January from Rangers.
â€œBut I brought David Weir back into the club and he kept talking to me about him and in the end we rustled up the cash. It was about Â£5m after Bilyaletdinov went back to Russia, and I have to say he has been great. He is what Everton needed â€“ we really needed a centre forward."
