Everton boss David Moyes is chasing Rangers attacker Steven Naismith.

The Scotland international had a release clause of £2million inserted in his contract after accepting a swinging 75-per-cent wage cut in February.

And, subject to further talks with Goodison chairman Bill Kenwright, Moyes hopes to be handed the funds to reunite Naismith with Nikica Jelavic, the scorer of 11 goals in 16 games following his £5.5m capture in January.

West Bromwich Albion have made known their interest in taking Naismith to The Hawthorns but have baulked at the player’s wage demands, says the Daily Mail.
