Everton boss David Moyes has challenged striker Nikica Jelavic to become an established striker at Goodison Park.

The Croatian has made a significant impact at his new club since joining from Rangers in January, netting 11 times for the Merseysiders in just 16 appearances.

"He has been a great signing for us, but my real signings are the people like Tim Cahill, Phil Neville, Tim Howard - the ones who have been here for six, seven or eight years and consistently done it," Moyes said.

"Niki has been here for a few months - what we are saying is that we want to see him doing that year in, year out like these boys have done.

"But he has certainly given us something to think about and the supporters something to cheer about.

"We have missed someone who can be a number nine at Everton really and for the moment Niki has done it well."
