Everton signing Naismith confident he can settle as quickly as Jelavic

Steven Naismith is drawing inspiration from Nikica Jelavic's success at Everton.

The pair played together at Rangers.

Asked if Jelavic's transition to the Premier League offered him confidence, he said: "It does. I've got confidence in my own ability but know I'm going to have to work as hard as I can to first of all impress my team-mates and manager to get a place in the team.

"But I'm confident I can contribute and be a success at the club. It's a great platform for me."
