'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Jelavic thanks Everton following departure

Nikica Jelavic has thanked Everton after completing his transfer to Hull.

Jelavic agreed personal terms with Hull City manager Steve Bruce after the two sides agreed a deal over the weekend for a transfer believed to be in the region of 5.5million plus potential add ons.

With the 28-year-old desperate to be a part of Croatia's World Cup squad for Brazil in the summer, Jelavic was keen for first team football, something he isn't getting at Everton but would get with Hull.

Personally I always find it refreshing when footballers want to play and aren't simply happy collecting their wages for a few hours of kicking a ball around in training, so I wish him luck and hope he goes on to enjoy his football with Hull and Croatia in the summer.

"I`d like to take this opportunity to thank the Everton fans from the bottom of my heart for their support.

"They gave me their backing from day one and never stopped believing in me, which is something I will always remember.
he told the Echo following his departure.

"Everton supporters have a special way of making you feel like one of them, and even when I was not in the team in more recent times I always felt they were behind me.

"While I`m sad to wave farewell to Everton and all my friends, it is time for my next challenge. I`m only pleased that I was able to say goodbye with two goals in the FA Cup win against QPR, and share some special celebrations with them one last time.
