The 26-year-old completed a medical and agreed personal terms at Everton's Finch Farm training base earlier before finalising the details of his contract at Goodison Park. The fee is believed to be in the region of £5.5million.

Jelavic was introduced to the crowd at half-time of their home game against Manchester City.

Jelavic arrives in the Premier League having netted an impressive 36 goals in just 55 appearances for Rangers.

He was signed by Rangers from Rapid Vienna for £4million in the summer of 2010 and proved an instant hit at Ibrox.

Prior to his move to Scotland, Jelavic had proved equally effective in front of goal in the Austrian league, scoring 40 times from 93 games in three seasons at Vienna.

Tuesday's transfer came too late for him to be considered for selection for the visit of Manchester City.

However, he will be in contention for his first appearance in an Everton shirt on Saturday when the Blues travel to Wigan in the Premier League.
