Report: James McCarthy and Kevin Mirallas set to sign new deals with Everton

Kevin Mirallas Belgium

Both players have been linked with moves away this summer, with Tottenham and West Ham among the interested parties.

Everton look set to receive a boost before the new season with new deals in the offing for James McCarthy and Kevin Mirallas, according to the Daily Mail.

McCarthy has been linked with a Tottenham Hotspur move all summer, as reported by the likes of The Mirror , but the Toffees' valuation of the Republic of Ireland international proved a stumbling block.

Spurs were unwilling to meet the upwards of £20 million demanded for the 24-year old, and he is now close to signing a new five-year deal with Everton.

Kevin Mirallas is another player to have been linked with a move away from Goodison Park, with West Ham United launching a £6 million last month, as reported by the Daily Mail.

The Belgian was said to be keen on joining a club with European football, but has now seemingly come around to the idea of an Everton stay.

Both players are vital components of a Roberto Martinez side that underwhelmed last year but - without the burden of the Europa League – should enjoy an improved campaign this time around.

Attention will now turn to in-demand John Stones and if Everton can retain his services beyond September 2nd, the prospects for the blue half of Merseyside will begin to look a whole lot brighter.
