Everton attacker Kevin Mirallas has revealed he wants to stay with Olympiacos after his loan deal with the Greek side expires at the end of the season.
The 30 year old returned to Olympiacos during the winter transfer window, and they have a €6m right of redemption to make his move from Everton permanent this summer.
Yesterday Olympiacos returned to winning ways as they beat Kerkyra 5-1, and the club’s manager for next season Pedro Martins was in the stands. Mirallas scored the second goal for Olympiacos, and was understandably happy.
Speaking after the game the Everton loanee said as reported by Snda: “I am working a lot. I am believing in myself. After a tough period, it was important for me to react after these kinds of bad moments. Of course it’s an additional motivation to see our next manager in the stands. We have to show him what we are all about.”
Mirallas then confirmed he wants to remain in Greece: “I’ve stated before that I want to stay at this great club. But right now, there’s nothing to discuss. This will be discussed at the end of the season. Let’s see what happens.”
Despite the Everton player saying he wants to stay with Olympiacos it’s not a guarantee they will active the right of redemption clause.
In recent days there have been reports the Greek giants need to raise €15m from player sales because they hope to build a squad with players from their own country.
