Goodison Park hero admits the time is right to move to the Walkers Stadium.
Everton striker Yakubu admits he has had enough of Merseyside and wants to move to Leicester City on a permanent deal this summer.
The 28-year-old has been on-loan at the Walkers Stadium since January and insists he is happy plying his trade with the Championship club.
The Nigerian has scored 10 goals in 19 appearances for Sven-Goran Eriksson’s side in a four-month loan spell.
The Goodison Park record £11.25million signing from Middlesbrough in 2007 has endured a tough time on Merseyside following long battlers with injury.
But Yakubu thinks the time is right to move on, and is happy to make his loan move to Leicester permanent as he is happy to playing and scoring goals.
“I think I’ve had enough [at Everton] and I have to look for somewhere to go – I would love to stay [at Leicester],” he told BBC Radio Leicester.
“Hopefully I can settle things there and come back. If I could come and play for Leicester that would be great.”
“I had a great time at Everton but I think I have to move on. I’ve had a great four months [at Leicester] and my season has been really good.
“It feels like home [at Leicester] and I feel like I’ve been here for three or four years – I’m enjoying it.
“The players and the fans have been really nice to me and hopefully I will see them again.
“To get a game and show people that I can score goals has been great.”
