Fenerbahce target Mirallas extends Everton contract

Fenerbahçe target Kevin Mirallas has extended his contract with Everton until 2018 according to the BBC.

Mirallas had been linked with a move away from Everton over the summer after stalling to renew his contract but it seems he will be staying put following his contract renewal.

Fanatik reported that Fenerbahçe have been keeping tabs on the 27-year-old midfielder.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez was quoted by the BBC as saying: “We all know the goalscoring threat and talent that Kevin brings and it was very important to end the uncertainty regarding the next step in his career.”

Everton signed the Belgium international from Olympiakos in 2012 and the midfielder has scored 29 times in 85 appearances for the Premier League outfit.

Mirallas scored 11 times in 24 appearances for the Toffees in all competitions last season.

The experienced midfielder has scored nine times in 46 games for the Belgium national side and featured in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Fenerbahçe recently signed Premier League stars Robin van Persie and Luis Nani from Manchester United.

The Yellow Canaries are currently managed by Vitor Pereira and will participate in the Europa League this summer.
