The 27-year-old was responding to reports, that came courtesy of Sky Sports, that he was turned away from training due to showing a “lack of effort.”
The former French international has been with the Toffees since January 2017 after he moved to them from Manchester United.
Everton have had a dismal start to the season, finding themselves in a relegation battle as they currently sit 15th in the Premier League.
The Toffees have acquired only 11 points from the first 11 games and have a goal difference of -12.
There’s only one team who have a worse goal difference and that’s bottom of the league Crystal Palace, West Ham also have goal difference of -12.
However, Everton were successful in their last league outing on Sunday against Watford.
The Toffees came from two goals behind to win the game 3-2 at Goodinson Park, with Watford and former Everton star Tom Cleverly missing a last minute penalty in the game.
Everton sacked their manager Ronald Koeman on October 23 due to the poor start to the season and currently being guided by caretaker manager David Unsworth as they hunt for a replacement.
Sam Allardyce is currently the bookies favourite for the role, priced at 1/2 to get the role.
