Belgium attacker to sign long-term Everton contract on Wednesday - reliable journalist
By Harvey Byrne
Everton attacker Kevin Mirallas is signing a new “long-term” contract at the club on Wednesday, according to a reliable journalist.
The 29-year-old right-winger’s current deal still has a year to run and there are growing concerns in regards to the futures of star duo Ross Barkley and Romelu Lukaku.
But, Times correspondent Paul Joyce has claimed on his personal Twitter account on Tuesday evening that the Toffees will secure one of their first team players to a longer deal with Mirallas signing “tomorrow”.
