Everton midfielder, Marouane Fellaini, has put end to all speculation by saying he is not leaving Everton.
Speculation has been building up this season because of the Belgium’s impressive form which has seen him bag eight Premier League goals, but he has confirmed that his future is at Goodison Park.
Chelsea were firmly in the mix for Fellaini’s signature and were prepared to bid £20m for the attacking midfielder, but now it seems that he wants to stay at Everton.
“My head is exclusively with Everton – I’m saying nothing about all the rumours.
“Although I’m happy to be praised for my performances, my future is with Everton. I’m on a good run and I want that to continue against Spurs.
“We are playing well enough to fight for a European place, even the Champions League, but we must retain this rhythm all season. It won’t be easy but we want to do it.
“Our fans deserve to have some more big European nights. I am pleased with my current form. There’s no secret to it – it’s a combination of luck, work and good positioning in the penalty area.
“I do what the forwards do….and score goals!”
Earlier in the season, Fellaini had said that he wants to play Champions League football, which sparked the rumours of him leaving, but currently, Everton are in the hunt for top four and that seems to have kept the Belgium happy at the club.
