Two departures from Merseyside were confirmed last week, with Philippe Coutinho leaving Liverpool for Barcelona and Kevin Mirallas moving from Everton to Olympiakos on loan.
The second of those transfers did not get hardly as much column inches as the first, though.
Mirallas has been part of Everton since 2012 when he signed from the Greek outfit that he will now represent once again.
Since his arrival, the attacking player has scored 38 goals in 186 appearances for the blue half of Merseyside.
In the last few seasons, Mirallas has struggled to keep all of the fanbase onside, mainly due to his attitude on the pitch.
The Belgian dropped down the rankings under former manager Ronald Koeman, and that trend has continued with Sam Allardyce in charge.
In fact, this season, the forward has made just 10 appearances in all competitions and five of them have been in the Premier League.
Once Everton had announced Mirallas’s move to Olympiakos, which will run until the end of the season, fans gave mixed responses.

Understand he divides opinion but I quite like him. Could argue he wasn't always at his best, but who really has been over the last 4 or 5 seasons?

Was he a pain in the ass? Yes. Did I still like him too much? Also yes. Best of luck back at Olympiakos Kev!
