Goodison Park favourite wants his first-team place back.
Everton midfielder Diniyar Bilyaletdinov is determined to stay and fight for a first-team place having been relegated to a bit-part player so far this season.
The 26-year-old has made just three appearances, two of which saw him substituted with the other being a 27-minute run out from the bench.
The Russia international is one of the stars who could be sold as manager David Moyes knows he must generate cash through sales in order to bring in new recruits.
Bilyaletdinov was linked with a return to his homeland in the summer but stressed he wants to stick it out on Merseyside.
“I want to stay here and prove something else,” he told the Liverpool Echo.
“I’ve got my agent, and maybe he got something (in the summer) but I’d say not now please – don’t touch me.
“We have got a lot of players in the midfield area and the task is different for every game.
“We can play with two or one (strikers). I think every manager has to choose certain players for certain games based on his vision for how the team should play.
“I can only work and wait for the pre-match meeting – if you play or don’t play you need to be focused even if it’s just for 10 minutes on the pitch because you can still change the game in that time.”
