Belgian international signs new contract with Everton

Belgian international signs new contract with Everton

Mirallas has signed a new three year contract with Everton

Amid speculation of one unsettled Belgian at Goodison Park, with Romelu Lukaku looking set to leave in the summer, another has committed his future to Everton by signing a new three year contract. Kevin Mirallas will now remain in Merseyside until 2020. 

Since joining the club in 2012, twenty nine year old Mirallas has been a regular first team player for the Toffees. Scoring 39 goals in 171 appearances for the club, the Belgium international is a popular figure with the supporters, with his commitment and skill impressing them regularly. 

Upon signing the new deal with his current employers, Mirallas heaped praise on the club, saying "This is an exciting time for the club. I hope we sign some top players to fight for the Champions League places next season. We have an amazing manager, an amazing team and amazing fans, I want to win a trophy here - this is the best club for me."

Not only will Everton fans be delighted to hear one of their players speak about the club in that manner, but they will also be hoping that sort of belief is shared by the rest of the squad, in particular Romelu Lukaku, who may be persuaded to stay if he sees the right sort of ambition from the club.
