Jelavic staying with Rangers but targets south of the border

Nikica Jelavic has ambitions to play in England, but for the moment is fully committed to Rangers. The striker was the subject of a £6.5million bid from Leicester, and reported interest from Fenerbahce.

"In all honesty, I am very happy here," the Croatian told Rangers Monthly.

"While there was a good offer from Leicester, that is not a club I want to move on to if I am to leave.

"Fenerbahce's proposal was really interesting but I wanted to stay at Rangers because we have a very good chance of winning the title again this season.

"At the moment, I'm really not thinking about any new clubs. I enjoy it in Glasgow, my family are happy here too and I still have three years on my contract.

"For me, the best league in Europe is in England and I would like to play there one day, although Spain and Germany are also very attractive.

"It is natural that I should want to play in the best competitions, and it would be nice to do that at some point, but I'm really not thinking about any of that at the moment."
