Denis Stracqualursi is hoping to get a few games to convince David Moyes that he deserves a full time contract at Everton. The 24 year old found it difficult at the start of his season long loan, but got a few goals in the new year.
The arrival of a fit, goalscoring Nikita Jelavic has left Denis fighting for a spot on the bench with Victor Anichebe, who has scored a few when he has come on. Plus David Moyes has youngsters Apostolos Vellios and Conor McAleny waiting in the wings.
With money for new players and contracts at a premium, the Argentinean striker is going to find it tough.
Denis said: "There were tough times at the beginning of the season, it was difficult. First and foremost, the language made things a bit harder. I wasn't understanding things and I wasn't able to express myself.
"But all that served to do was to give me more desire and make me more determined to achieve my objective, which was to play and score goals.
"Whether things turn out well or badly, I've always had the idea of giving everything."
