Besic: Dzeko convinced me about Everton move

Everton midfielder Muhamed Besic admits talking with Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko before moving to England.

The pair are teammates with the Bosnian national team.

"Edin said I would have to be patient when I arrived because the league is so different," Besic explains.

"He said it's the best league in the world. Roberto Martinez then told me about Everton and how the fans were so passionate. He explained about the club's history.

"So far I have shown about 50 per cent of what they will see. I need a bit more time but I hope in another half year, when I am really settled, my quality will come out.

"My ambitions? My ambition is to win every game I play. Whether it is Manchester City or whoever - I want to win."
