Jim Jefferies is backing Everton's move for Rangers attacker Steven Naismith, who he worked with at Kilmarnock.

Jefferies - who also first spotted Everton hero David Weir - suspects the Toffees are in a prime position to seal a deal for the man once dubbed 'Kid Goals'.

"He would be a really good signing for Everton," the current Dunfermline Athletic boss told the Liverpool Echo. "I think with Davie (Weir) and Jelavic there they'll be saying to him 'Come here', and you've got a good chance.

"The fans at Goodison would love him and he'd be terrific value with no transfer fee."
