Everton midfielders Kevin Mirallas and Morgan Schneiderlin were both sent home from training last Saturday, according to reports.
The midfielders were dismissed by Everton caretaker manager David Unsworth due to a lack of effort, and were then left out of the squad in the win against Watford in Week 11. The high-profile duo's future looks to be up in the air after being linked with a move away from the club as they have hardly played in the last three weeks of the season, which could have serious repercussions for them as they look to play in next year's World Cup. Said Mirallas on social media: Thank you for all your messages. It's a difficult situation for me, but in life there are things much more serious than my personal situation." Nov 13 - 6:04 PM

Despite a blowup with manager Ronald Koeman, Everton has rejected a loan bid for Kevin Mirallas.

West Ham is reportedly looking to add another attacking midfielder after allowing Robert Snodgrass to join Aston Villa on loan this week, and made a move to prize Mirallas away from Merseyside in a loan move before Thursday's deadline. However, Koeman confirmed that the Belgian's omission from the Chelsea loss wasn't due to a potential transfer, but his attitude: "Mirallas was out because he is struggling to deal with moments in the season and with disappointments. Everybody can be disappointed but I expect from everybody to be part of the team and if somebody is showing that his attitude is not the same, I make decisions."

Everton has tied down midfielder Kevin Mirallas to a new contract with just a year left on his previous deal.

The Belgian playmaker has recorded four goals and six assists in his first season under Ronald Koeman and has now signed a new three-year contract through the summer of 2020. The 29-year-old has been linked with an exit over the last year, but the 29-year-old opted to remain at Goodison for the near future: "This contract is very important for me and my family. I am very happy here – this is the best club for me. I’ve been here five years and it’s very important for me to win a trophy here. I’ve said before that my dream is to win at least one trophy with Everton and I firmly believe we are heading in the right direction."

Everton manager Ronald Koeman confirmed that he rested Kevin Mirallas and James McCarthy due to injury this weekend.

The midfield pair missed out on the club's 0-0 draw with Middlesbrough as Mirallas picked up a groin injury while McCarthy sustained a strained hamstring against Bournemouth in Gameweek 25, where he recorded a goal and an assist. However, Koeman said he expects the duo to return for the club's match against Sunderland next weekend: "They weren’t fit enough today. James was struggling after last weekend and, with his history this season, we didn’t take any risks. He will be available in two weeks. It’s the same for Kevin who was struggling with his groin. We want to make sure he is 100 per cent for the next game."

Everton recorded its first win of the Ronald Koeman era in a 2-1 victory against West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns.

Everton went behind early after a missed assignment on a corner kick led to a goal from West Brom defender Gareth McAuley at the back post in just the ninth minute. But Kevin Mirallas pulled the Toffees even in stoppage time of the first half with a perfect touch to the far corner of the net out of Ben Foster's reach. Then, Gareth Barry made a rare cameo appearance on the score sheet with what ended up being the match-winner in the 60th minute after heading in a mishit shot from Mason Holgate off a set-piece to earn the three points.

Roberto Martinez has confirmed that Everton duo Kevin Mirallas and Mo Besic will not be available for Wednesday nights' Capital One Cup semi-final versus Man City because of injury.

Besic lasted barely ten minutes of Sundays’ home game against Swansea after a hamstring problem forced the midfielder off. Although the loss comes as a bitter blow, the good news is that the suspected strain occurred in the left leg and not the right which hampered his progress during the early months of this season. Mirallas will also be checked after injuring a tendon around the knee: "I don't expect them to be fit for Wednesday and I expect a bit of a period where they will be unavailable. It is a real shame because both players gave us a really refreshing look and reached good levels at this stage of the season." Phil Jagielka will return to the squad having been rested in game week twenty-three.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez reiterated that the club is not looking to sell winger Kevin Mirallas despite numerous reports saying the Belgian is set to leave the club.

When asked whether Everton could be tempted into making a move, Martinez replied, "No, not at all. Kevin signed a new contract in the summer. He had a really strong pre-season. We allow football to make decisions. We've got really good attacking options and Kevin was unfortunate...I expect Kevin to have a major influence in the second half of the season." Mirallas has been linked with a move to Monaco, AC Milan and Marseille in recent weeks and is reportedly considering a move so he can gain more playing time before this summer's European championships.

Everton had plenty of chances to get on the board but could not find the end product as they would settle for a 0-0 draw with Swansea City.

Both sides had their chances but the Toffees had more of them, and more of the quality variety. Romelu Lukaku, Ross Barkley and Steven Naismith all looked to be on the end of goals but some last second tackling and clearances kept them from finding paydirt. The defense did well to keep the Swans out as well and a draw was likely the fair result. Kevin Mirallas, subbed in for the final couple of minutes, earned a straight red for a stamp on Modou Barrow. Disappointing for managers who have investment in Everton's attack but they look capable of bouncing back next week.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez is still reeling from the ‘disastrous’ (his words) loss of left-back Leighton Baines to a long-term injury. And now is sweating on the fitness of winger Kevin Mirallas ahead of their trip to Southampton…

Roberto Martinez has more headaches ahead of Everton’s trip to Southampton at the weekend. Leighton Baines is likely to be out for months rather than weeks, following an injury to the ankle which required surgery at the end of last season. Youngster Brenden Galloway replaced Baines v Watford, with Bryan Oviedo a more experienced option. Winger Kevin Mirallas also picked up a knock in the opening day draw with Watford and is rated as doubtful to make it for Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off at St Marys. Summer (re)signing Gerard Deufoleu stands by to be drafted in to make his second Everton debut, despite not being 100% match fit. Everton now commence a punishing run of fixtures that includes Man City, Chelsea and trips to Tottenham and Swansea. Only the bravest FL managers will be trusting Everton defenders in the next month…

After a lot of speculation about his future, Kevin Mirallas has signed a contract extension with Everton that will keep him at the club for the next three years.

Mirallas is very talented. Mirallas also seems to be perpetually injured. Last season, things between he and Roberto Martinez appeared to reach a breaking point with Mirallas insisting on taking a critical penalty over usual penalty-taker Leighton Baines and then missing it badly. The incident cost Everton points and many suspected it would cost Mirallas his job. Apparently fences have been mended after rumors of a move to Spurs and Mirallas is now going to be a Toffee for the next three seasons. Oh, he's still uncertain to start in Week 1 against Watford because no contract extension can change the fact that he's hurt a lot.

Roberto Martinez has confirmed that Kevin Mirallas and John Stones will be assessed after the pair were substituted against Villareal due to ankle injuries.

However the Toffees boss didn’t seem overly concerned post-match "I don’t expect it to be anything too serious" suggesting there withdrawal was more of a precaution. Romelu Lukaku was missing from Sundays’ testimonial [for Duncan Ferguson] but the striker was rested after feeling discomfort in his hamstring midweek while Gerard Deulofeu was another absentee despite early optimism that the Spanish winger would be fine following his recent thigh problem. Everton are already struggling with Tony Hibbert, Aidan McGeady, Mo Besic, Steven Pienaar and Darron Gibson out of the opener although they have been boosted by the return to fitness of Leighton Baines and Bryan Oviedo.

Roberto Martinez has lined up Seville winger Diego Capel as a replacement for the restless Kevin Mirallas…

The relationship between Kevin Mirallas and Roberto Martinez has been strained ever since last season’s ‘penalty-gate’. After Mirallas insisted on taking, then missing a penalty he won v West Brom last season, Mirallas failed to appear for the second half. Martinez first claimed the change was due to injury, later saying it was tactical. It emerged that Mirallas wanted to score to display a t-shirt tribute to the late Junior Malanda. Either way, it put a wedge between the two fueling speculation that Mirallas could be on his way. The arrival of winger Gerard Deufoleu, interest in Tottenham’s Aaron Lennon (possibly as part of a swap deal) has done nothing to quell the rumors. And now Martinez’s interest in Seville’s Spanish international wide man Diego Capel suggests the writing is on the wall. Seville are looking for around £2m.

Ongoing speculation about the futures of James McCarthy, Kevin Mirallas and now John Stones threatens to sabotage Everton’s season before it starts…

Summer transfer speculation is nothing new for Everton. Last year it was Seamus Coleman and Ross Barkley, the year before Marouanne Fellaini and Leighton Baines. This summer however, Martinez has boldly – and repeatedly – stated that Everton are no longer a ‘selling’ club. But it seems nobody is listening. James McCarthy has been heavily linked with Man City and Tottenham. Kevin Mirallas is the subject of a £6m bid from West Ham. And Chelsea are circling above John Stones, ready, willing and able to pay whatever it takes. The signing of Gerard Deufoleu will negate the loss of Mirallas and the addition of Tom Cleverley softens the blow if McCarthy leaves. But it is a worrying lack of progress following last season’s bottom half finish. And should crown Jewel John Stones succumb to Jose’s charms, Martinez could be left with just one senior center-back. And a back full of money has never made a tackle, won a header or kept a clean sheet…

Mauricio Pochettino is looking to revamp Spurs as an attacking force. The club are believed to be preparing a double swoop with Chelsea winger Victor Moses and Everton speedster Kevin Mirallas high on his shopping list this summer.

Tottenham tailed off during the latter part of the 2014/15 season, a dip in form which ultimately cost the Lilywhites a shot at Champions League qualification. Only Harry Kane was able to deliver consistently while the form of Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela and Nacer Chadli was patchy at best. With Aaron Lennon expected to depart over the coming weeks Pochettino has focussed his attention on Victor Moses who impressed on-loan at Stoke before injury curtailed his season and Kevin Mirallas. The Belgian only started 8 BPL games in 2015 and failed to complete 90 minutes in any of those.

Everton look set to lose winger Kevin Mirallas with Tottenham standing by to swoop…

Mirallas is in the last year of his contract at Everton and reportedly keen on a move to London, which could prompt Tottenham to reignite their pursuit of the Belgian. A swap deal involving Aaron Lennon almost went through in January – Lennon spent a successful second half of the season at Goodison and both parties seem keen to make the move permanent – but Tottenham are expected to make a straight cash offer for Mirallas. With a figure of around £7 million mooted. The mercurial Mirallas scored seven goals from just 18 starts last term and is highly thought of at Everton, but the relationship between him and manager Roberto Martinez soured after the ‘penalty gate’ incident v West Brom in January. The arrival of £4.3 million winger Gerard Deufoleu from Barcelona this week and an enquiry about the availability of Man United’s Adnan Januzaj on loan will not have improved relations between the two.
