Everton winger Kevin Mirallas has revealed his role in attracting Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku to join the Merseyside club on loan until the end of the season. 

Mirallas, a fellow Belgian international teammate of Lukaku's, admits he convinced the big striker to join the Toffees on Monday evening when the pair were on international duty with their country. 

The Everton winger spoke to Evertonfc.com, and seemed proud of his persuasive skills that enticed the 20-year-old to make the move. 

"I was with Romelu in the team hotel on Monday night, and I only left when I was sure he was joining us," said Mirallas. 

The Everton number 11 didn't hold-back in eluding to the efforts he made in convincing Lukaku it was a good move. 

"I was surprised to learn we were in for him, because there had been no inkling, but once I got word, I really went to work," he added. 

The Belgian striker, who claimed he made the decision to join Everton by himself, still needed to be sold on the idea by the Everton man. 

"I just tried to convince him that Everton was the right step to take and he would love it at Goodison, and I'm really pleased he took it on board," Mirallas concluded. 

Belgium play Scotland at Hampden Park on Friday as Lukaku and co look to continue their good form. The Belgian squad currently sit top of the Group A table, and are well placed to qualify for next year's World Cup in Brazil.
