Jagielka hails Clever' move

Everton captain Phil Jagielka believes the often-maligned Tom Cleverley has proved his critics wrong.

Despite not being selected for last year's World Cup, the 24-year-old (right)impressed on loan to Aston Villa as they escaped relegation and got to the FA Cup final, and having joined Everton on a free transfer this summer, Jagielka is looking forward to seeing the best of his international colleague."He's really excited to come here because it is a fresh start for him," he said. "It was nice that he had the chance to go out on loan last season because things weren't going too well for him at Manchester United.

"He proved a lot of people wrong at Aston Villa - he obviously scored against us which I am sure he will take a little bit of stick for when he comes in.

"He's a really good addition."
