Everton Sign Kevin Mirallas on a 4-Year Deal for an Undisclosed Fee
Everton FC finalized the signing of Belgian international forward Kevin Mirallas for an undisclosed fee Sunday morning, according to the club's official website.
The versatile attacking player arrives from Olympiacos—one of Greece's largest and most popular clubs—on a four-year deal.
Only 24 years old, Mirallas looks like a typical David Moyes signing, showing tremendous promise and lowering the overall age of Everton's thin squad.
Last season, the Belgian scored 20 goals in 25 matches for his former club and was one of the breakout players of the Greek league. Overall, he played 52 times in two seasons at the club and was previously on the books at both Lille and Saint-Etienne in Ligue 1.
The move for Mirallas was largely made possible due to the sale of Jack Rodwell for an initial £12 million fee to Manchester City. It is possible that Everton could also add 17-year-old French superstar M'Baye Niang from Caen in the coming days, according to ESPNsoccernet.
After signing, Mirallas stated:
I've known Everton have been following me for a while and after talking with the manager I decided coming to Everton was the best opportunity for me.
The player has already linked up with David Moyes' team for training and is welcomed to the club by fellow French-speaking Belgian Marouane Fellaini.
