Everton manager Roberto Martinez has quashed rumors linking Belgium international winger Kevin Mirallas with a move away from the Blues.

Reports this week have suggested the 28-year-old has a desire to leave Merseyside in order to get more game time ahead of Belgium's Euro 2016 squad selection next summer.

Mirallas has been constantly linked with the exit door, but rumours calmed down after he signed a two-year contract extension during the summer.

However, Martinez has rubbished such rumours and assured Everton fans Mirallas is happy at the club: "It couldn't be further from the truth.

"Kevin Mirallas is a very important player he knows that and all he wants now is to get important playing time."

Mirallas has experienced a frustrating season so far; suffering from several injuries and picking up a three-match ban after receiving a red card against Swansea City. The Belgian has therefore found game time difficult to come by and has spent the majority of the season on the bench.

Liege-born Mirallas joined Everton in the summer of 2012 for £6 million after enjoying a prolific spell at Olympiakos. He spent two seasons in Greece scoring 34 goals and winning two league titles.

Impressive performances attracted interest from Arsenal and Everton, but Mirallas chose the latter to get more playing time.

The Toffees will be desperate to keep hold of the Belgian forward, who has shown his match-winning capabilities numerous times during his three years at the club.

If given a run of games at Goodison Park, Mirallas will be desperate to prove himself with the European Championships just around the corner.
