Neville: Jagielka needed to recognise size of Everton

Everton skipper Phil Neville has revealed how Phil Jagielka needed to recognise the size of the club before he could settle after joining from Sheffield United.

He told evertonfc.com: When you look at that, you make your judgement in terms of consistency and reliability and Jags hasn't let anyone down on either front. I still think there is even more to come from him; he can get quicker, stronger and perhaps he doesn't realise how far he can go.

"It took him a while to find his feet and perhaps he didn't realise how big a club Everton is. Once the penny dropped, he has not looked back and he has become a massive player for us."
