Goodison Park star committed to club.
Marouane Fellaini has admitted he wants to go higher in football but says he is committed to honouring his deal with Everton if the club want him to stay.
Fellaini has been linked with a move away from Goodison Park after emerging as one of the strongest players in the Premier League over the past couple of seasons.
He remains under contract at Everton for another three-and-a-half years and insists he is happy to stay for as long as the club want him.
“I want to go higher in football but I have a contract with Everton until 2016 and, if they want me to, I will see it out to the end,” said the Belgian.

This is an interesting statement from the Belgian international.
In many ways it could be the Everton star’s way of putting the ball back into the Goodison Park side’s court. By stating his intention and willingness to remain at the club until the end of his deal so publicly he leaves the potential of any sale down firmly to the club.
Chairman Bill Kenwright may find it hard to resist big offers for the 25 year old and the form the powerful attacking midfielder has displayed this season will certainly leave many of Europe’s ‘Elite’ interested in his services.
Fellaini has netted eight goals in 15 matches to help keep the Toffees in and around the top four for most of the season. David Moyes picked up only their third defeat of the season on the weekend at home to Chelsea.
The former Standard Liege is into his fifth season on Merseyside following his £15m move to Everton and it may take a fee nearer double that outlay to convince the club to sell such a prized asset.
