Everton winger Kevin Mirallas has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur in the summer.

Everton winger Kevin Mirallas has been quoted as saying by The Liverpool Echo that the club have broken promises they made to him.

The 27-year-old’s current contract with the Premier League outfit runs out in June 2016, but he has suggested that he could leave the Toffees in the summer transfer window.

Mirallas has also admitted that he has an “awkward relationship” with Everton manager Roberto Martinez.

“Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid were interested (in January), but Everton obliged me to stay at the club,” the Liverpool Echo quotes the Belgium international as saying.

“I understood because our young group had performed below expectations. So I had to stay. But in the second half of the season I was suddenly playing less games.

“There are promises broken and it makes for a somewhat awkward relationship with the coach. Soon, I will have a conversation with him.

“I have had a beautiful three years with Everton. I have experienced many great moments and for that I must thank the club. I don’t know whether I will leave, it is a decision I have to make in consultation with my family.”

Mirallas’s comments will not be good news for Everton, but they will certainly be encouraging for the Tottenham Hotspur fans.

According to a report in The Mirror last month, Tottenham are interested in the former Olympiacos star.

The Belgian is one of the better players in the Premier League, although he did not have a particularly great 2014-15 campaign.

In 29 Premier League appearances, Mirallas scored seven goals and created 18 chances, and had a pass accuracy of 85% and a shot accuracy of 44%.

Mirallas, though, remains a very good player who has been successful in England. Signing him would be a good piece of business for Tottenham.
