Unsworth backs Jagielka for Everton success

David Unsworth is backing former Sheffield United teammate Phil Jagielka to be a big hit at Everton.

The former Blues captain told evertonfc.com: "Without a doubt.

"When he gets a great tackle in on someone early doors on his debut then the fans will take to him - and Jags loves a tackle!"

Unsworth continued: "I don't know where he'll play but wherever it is, Jags won't let anybody downy.

"He's quick, good in the air and being at Everton around better players, with all due respect to Sheffield United, will only improve him as a player.

"He's a terrific lad, too. A really top man and he's a big Evertonian. When we were team-mates he would always be asking me about Everton."
