Mirallas hints at Everton departure

Everton forward Kevin Mirallas has hinted that he could leave the club should his first-team prospects not improve by January.

The Belgium international has been on the periphery at Goodison Park this season, starting just one game, which came against Watford on the opening day.

And Mirallas admits he could leave the club in search of more regular playing time to boost his chances of making Marc Wilmots' Belgium squad for Euro 2016.

"At this point, I see my future at this club but if I'm still in the same situation in January, something will have to happen," the 28-year-old told HLN Plus.

"I have not yet talked to my agent. I'm concentrating fully on Everton. But, in football, you are sometimes faced with situations that you did not foresee.

"In relation to the national team, I'm staying calm, because there are still a few months to go [until the Euros].

"But if the situation drags on, I'll be asking questions in January because if I am not playing, it will be hard to win a place in the 23 for the European Championship.

"But I'll now try especially hard to become a starter at Everton again. If I do that, I see no problem."
