Roberto Martinez reveals plans for crucial meeting over Aaron Lennon's future at Everton

Aaron Lennon

Roberto Martinez insists that no deal has been agreed between Everton and Tottenham Hotspur for Aaron Lennon.

Roberto Martinez has told Everton's official website that he will sit down with Aaron Lennon at the end of the season to discuss his future.

Lennon has impressed at Goodison Park since arriving on loan from Tottenham Hotspur, and the Daily Mail have suggested that the move could be made permanent in the summer.

Martinez, however, says that nothing has been decided yet and he is planning to gauge Lennon's opinion on extending his stay after the season has finished.

He said: “Aaron is enjoying his football and his contribution to the team has been significant. He has got four games left and all I want is for him to enjoy every single second of it and make sure he enjoys the experience as much as we have benefitted from his talent.

“Then, at the end of the season, will be the moment to sit down. A loan is a loan and it means that we are looking for a successful outcome out of that.

“Then, when the loan finishes, you have got a three way conversation to see where that will take us. But the focus now is to see Azza enjoying his football in the next four games.”

Lennon has offered Everton a new dimension going forward during his time on Merseyside, helping to highlight his value to the squad.

The England international has managed to score twice in his first 11 appearances for the Toffees, with his direct style impressing many observers.

Lennon's arrival at Everton has coincided with their best run of form this season and it would be a surprise if Martinez did not try and complete a deal for the winger this summer.

Lennon appears to have been deemed surplus to requirements by Tottenham and his chances of making the starting line-up back at White Hart Lane are limited, meaning a move to Goodison Park looks to be the best option for him.
