Steven Naismith was pleased with how his second season went at Everton.
Naismith made the move to Goodison Park almost two-year-ago from Rangers on a free transfer.
During his first season at Everton and in the English Premier League, he made 31 appearances but with many coming from the substitutes bench it would appear that the 27-year-old was slightly frustrated.
This season he also made 31 Premier League appearances, however this included more starts and more goals.
"For me I look back each season and see if there needs to be an improvement and this season there has definitely been a bigger improvement than last season when I was getting used to new surroundings and coming back from injury," Naismith told The Echo.
Naismith is also happier with the role that he plays in the side.
Under former manager David Moyes, Naismith often found himself playing outwide, but new boss Roberto Martinez has played him through the middle.
He continued: "I think something else which has helped me is that the manager has played me more centrally,
"That is where I feel more comfortable and I am glad I have been able to show the manager that I have been able to contribute for the team there.
"Overall I have been delighted with the way the second season has gone. Every year I will look to improve and contribute more."
