Goodison Park side sign Belgian international.
Everton new boy Kevin Mirallas has spoken of his delight at joining Everton and says he can’t wait to get his Toffees career up and running.
The Belgian international completed a move from Greek champions Olympiakos on Sunday, penning a four-year deal.
A forward who is comfortable playing behind a striker or on either wing, Mirallas notched 34 goals in 52 league games during his time at the Karaiskakis Stadium, dazzling with a wide array of skills in the process.
Now he hopes to bring that kind of verve to the Premier League and win over supporters with his enthusiastic displays.
“I’ll give my best for the fans and the team and they’ll be able to see what I can bring to the team,” he told evertontv in his exclusive first interview as a Blue.
“I’m a forward player and I can play behind the striker, on the left and on the right but I’m just looking forward to playing whatever the position.

So another Belgian heads for the Premier League and Kevin Mirallas is said to have cost £6m according to BBC Sport and that seems like a very decent fee for an in-form attacker.
Mirallas, as the Everton website mentions, is an adaptable attacker but last term it was in an orthodox striking role that the Olympiakos man was best suited, finishing the season as the top scorer in Greece with 20 goals. Indeed the former Lille and Saint-Etienne man won back to back domestic titles with the Athens side before moving to Goodison Park.
David Moyes may have felt the need to bring in another goal-scoring option after Tim Cahill left for the MLS. The Toffees have already brought in Steven Naismith and Steven Pienaar this summer.
