Everton's Kevin Mirallas moves to Belgium

Everton forward Kevin Mirallas has Belgium top-flight side Royal Antwerp on a one-year deal on a free transfer.

The player joined the Merseyside club from Olympiakos seven years ago but spent last season on loan at Italian side Fiorentina and has been on the fringes of the Blues' first-team for the past two campaigns.

It is said that Mirallas had been told by manager Marco Silva that he was not part of his plans together with DR Congo winger Yannick Bolasie.

In his seven-year stay, Mirallas made 186 appearances for the club, scoring 38 goals in the process.

In the international stage, Mirallas has represented Belgium at under-17, under-19 and under-21 level, and was one of the leading figures in guiding the under-21s to the semi-finals of the 2007 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship.

Full Internation Debut

He made his full international debut for the senior team in 2007 and scored his first-ever international goal against Serbia in Brussels on 23 August of that year, as a Mousa Dembélé brace helped the Red Devils to a 3–2 home victory.

Mirallas was part of the Belgian squad which reached the quarter-finals at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, making his tournament debut in the second group match, a 1-0 win over Russia in the Maracanã but was left out of the 2018 squad that featured in Rusia.
