Everton ace Kevin Mirallas pens new Toffees contract

Everton have announced that Kevin Mirallas has signed a new three-year contract with the club.

The 29-year-old signed in 2012 from Greek side Olympiacos, and has made 171 appearances for the club, scoring 39 goals.

Mirallas is targeting silverware during his time at Goodison Park.

He told the Toffees’ official website: ‘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 that we are heading in the right direction.

‘We have an amazing manager, amazing team and amazing fans. This is an exciting time for the club. I hope we sign some top players to fight for the Champions League places next season.

“There’s also a big project with the new stadium, which the chairman (Bill Kenwright) and (majority shareholder) Farhad Moshiri have been pushing forward with – and all of that is very important for me.
‘The manager was also an important part in my decision to sign a new contract because he believes in my qualities.
‘I have spoken with the manager and I know he wants more from me: more assists, more goals, more consistency.
‘I will work hard for that and hope to play even better next season.’
