Belgium international gives Everton ultimatum regarding January exit

Everton star Kevin Mirallas has warned his manager Roberto Martinez that he will look for a January exit unless he is given more game time, according to reports from the Daily Star.

Mirallas has been a mainstay with the Toffees ever since his arrival back in the summer of 2012, but this season the winger has struggled for regular football with the likes of Gerard Deulofeu, Aaron Lennon, and Arouna Kone ahead of him in the pecking order.

This has seen Mirallas become frustrated at Goodison Park as the 28-year-old aims to make the Belgium squad for Euro 2016 next summer.

So despite only signing a new Everton contract back in August, Mirallas has given Martinez an ultimatum to either use him, or let him go.

He said: “It’s not easy to live such a situation but it happens like that in the world of football.

“I don’t think in terms of my place in the national team.

“But in January, if my situation has not changed, I will ask questions and perhaps consider a departure.”

The former Olympiakos star could become a target for West Ham United, with Hammers manager Slaven Bilic reportedly making an offer to sign him back in the summer.

Mirallas made 36 appearances in all competitions last season, scoring 11 goals.
