Emphatic: How Everton star addressed rumours of discontent

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku gave an emphatic response to circulating reports he was unhappy with the Toffees on his Twitter page.

The Daily Mirror had earlier claimed the Belgian was annoyed that the Merseyside outfit had not paid for his return to England after international duty.

Unlike many of the other clubs who are reported to have shelled out £6,500 to return their players, Everton did not play over the course of the weekend.

Instead, they are said to have opted out of paying the fee as they started preparation for the game on Thursday, leaving both he and Kevin Mirallas to pay it themselves.

However, convincing as that may sound, the former Chelsea forward took to social media to dispell any suggestion there were any lingering feelings of ill-will between the two.

The 23-year-old got off the mark for the season by notching twice against Cyprus and will be looking to add to his tally against Sunderland this evening.
