Everton signed Belgium forward
Kevin Mirallas from Greece's Olympiakos on Sunday as a partial
replacement for attacking midfielder Jack Rodwell, who left for
Manchester City last week.
The Liverpool-based side have agreed a four-year deal with
the 24-year-old Mirallas, who moves for an undisclosed fee
although media reports put the amount around six million pounds.
"I am very happy because Everton is a big club," he said in
a statement from the Premier League side, seventh last term.
"I've known Everton have been following me for a while and
after talking with the manager I decided coming to Everton was
the best opportunity for me."
Mirallas, who featured for Belgium in last week's 4-2
friendly win over the Netherlands, scored 20 goals in 25
appearances for Olympiakos last season.
He can operate behind the main striker or on the wing but
will not be eligible for Monday's season opener at home to
Manchester United because he missed Friday's signing deadline.
