Nikica Jelavic: Interesting clubs in Britain and abroad

Everton boss Roberto Martinez admits Nikica Jelavic is a wanted man, with Queens Park Rangers among those chasing his signature.

The Toffees are prepared to listen to offers for the 28-year-old striker, as a dramatic dip in form has dropped him down their pecking order.

Jelavic is also willing to take on a new challenge as he sets his sights on a place in Croatia's squad for the 2014 World Cup.

QPR would welcome the opportunity to add a proven marksman to their Championship promotion push, but Martinez says no decision has been taken as yet.

In fact, the Spaniard intends to use Jelavic as an attacking weapon in his efforts to overcome QPR in FA Cup third round action on Saturday.

Martinez said: "Rangers have asked about Nikica but there is nothing concrete.

"There have been a few clubs asking about him, a few from abroad and a few from the British game.

"Would his situation affect my selection? No. I have no doubts Niki is ready to play and perform well.

"We've been very open, up front and honest with Niki.

"We have sat down and spoken about the situation so we all know where we are."

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
