Everton to resist Tottenham bid for Kevin Mirallas

Tottenham may make a late deadline day bid for forward Kevin Mirallas - but Everton will to their upmost to reject any bid.

BBC reporter Phil McNulty, who has good contacts on Merseyside, has suggested that Spurs are considering whether to bring forward a bid for the Belgian winger, who is reportedly keen to leave in order to play Champions League football.

Mirallas has more than a year left on his contract with the club also able to exercise a 12 month extension, meaning Everton are under no pressure to cash in on Mirallas now.

The 27-year-old may well leave the club in the summer though, especially as the only way Everton can deliver Champions League football is if they win the Europa League.

Mirallas was linked with a move to White Hart Lane earlier this month in a straight swap deal for Aaron Lennon, though as Mirallas is worth considerably more than the former Leeds man that deal was never going to happen in its present form.

It looks like Mirallas will be going nowhere for now, but don't rule out an exit - sadly - in the summer.
