Pranjic hoping for Everton move

Daniel Pranjic is expecting some ‘concrete developments’ over his future as he reportedly closes in on a possible move to Everton.

The Croatian international has been mooted as a replacement for Leighton Baines amid reports he could leave Goodison Park this summer to join Manchester United.

Pranjic claims he was close to joining the Toffees from Bayern Munich in the January transfer window and would now be available for free after his contract expired at the German giants.

David Moyes watched the 31-year-old during Croatia’s Euro 2012 clash with eventual champions Spain and it’s rumoured that he will reignite a bid to sign the wing-back.

The player is currently on holiday with his family but expects some definitive progress on the search for a new club with his most likely destination appearing to be the Premier League.

He told Sportske Novosti: “I am honoured that such a successful coach wants to sign me, and would be honoured to play for a club like Everton with such a rich history.

“We were very close to completing a deal in January, but then Bayern prevented it going through. I can’t say that everything is finished, but next week I’m expecting some concrete developments.

“I’m hungry to play again, to fight with my team-mates for success, to play for the fans. I missed all that sitting on the bench at Bayern.

“I’m 31 years old and physically I feel perfect. I have reached my maturation point as a player and as a person, and I think I’m capable of producing the best form of my career.”
