Fellaini not seeking quick Everton exit
Thursday 15 November 2012
Marouane Fellaini has moved to put the record straight on stories linking him with a move away from Everton, with Sky Sports reporting that the Belgium international has admitted he wants to play for one of the world’s biggest clubs, but is in no rush to leave Goodison Park.
Fellaini has been one of the standout performers in Everton’s strong start to the new season, scoring three goals in his last two games - including a brace against Fulham - and netting six goals in total, including the winner in the campaign’s opening fixture against Manchester United.
The 25-year-old’s displays have been of such quality that rumours have inevitably swirled around his next step, with talk of a number of suitors in the Premier League and abroad keen to test Everton’s resolve to keep the midfielder. Fellaini however only recently signed a long-term contract that runs until 2016 and acknowledges that even if he was looking for a new club, Everton would not be inclined to sell.
Fellaini added: “There is in interest in me. But Everton are an ambitious club as well. I don't think they will let their best players go just like that. I want to play for one of the biggest clubs one day. But I am patient.”
