Marouane Fellaini drops Everton exit bombshell
Everton have enjoyed a strong start to the season, with the Toffees beating Manchester United in their opening match before a convincing 3-1 win at Villa Park.

On both occasions, Marouane Fellaini was a stand-out performer although it appears the Belgian could be entering the final stage of his stint at Goodison Park, with the midfielder hinting that he could leave the Merseyside club in January.
“I am just starting my fifth season at Everton, this will be one of my last,” he told Het Nieuwsblad.
“I have seen everything. In January or at the end of the season I will turn to another club or championship.”
This is bad news for Everton who will hope something has been lost in translation considering a new contract was agreed last November which was supposed to keep Fellaini at the club until 2016.
At least David Moyes knows that he can command a handsome profit if the player was sold on, with Fellaini’s latest performances suggesting that he won’t be short of suitors come the January transfer window.
Fellaini joined Everton from Standard Liege in 2008 and has made 110 appearances for the Toffees, while his appearance for Belgium against Wales on Friday night means he now has 36 international caps.
