After beginning the week in a gloomy mood, Everton supporters' spirits have been lifted by the news that Kevin Mirallas has followed James McCarthy in signing a new deal at Goodison  Park.

The news caps a remarkable turnaround for Mirallas who looked to be on his way out of the club after expressing his frustration in January when Everton resisted two bids for the forward.

Matters weren't helped by the penalty incident against West Brom, with some fans accusing Mirallas of being selfish at a time were the team was struggling and needed everyone to pull together.

West Ham were heavily linked with the former Olympiakos man, who was about to go into the final year of his contract. However, Everton knew there was an extension clause built into the deal that would allow them to extend it by a further year.

Mirallas has now signed a brand new extension, keeping him at the club until 2018, and he has immediately set his sights on ending Everton's trophy doubt.

Speaking about the deal, he said:

"I’ve signed at Everton to win a trophy. I’m at a good team and I can continue my performances here.

"Now I am very happy because I can concentrate on my team and our future, starting with the Premier League tomorrow.”
