Belgian forward Kevin Mirallas is set to leave Everton and return to former club Olympiacos

In his five and a half years at Goodison Park, Mirallas played more than 130 times for the Merseyside club and helped Belgium reached the quarter-finals of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

He said: "If anyone is going to leave it'll be for a fee that we can reuse".

Everton want to sell 30-year-old Mirallas but Olympiacos are keen to sign him on loan initially

Everton have confirmed that winger Kevin Mirallas has rejoined Greek side Olympiacos on loan for the rest of the season.

LGBT Case: Supreme Court to Review Constitutional Validity of Section 377
In 2014, the Supreme Court refused to review the decision while hearing multiple pleas on the matter. Endorsing a rethink on the law, the CJI observed, "Societal morality changes from age to age".

Mirallas found playing time hard to come by this season for Everton, making just five appearances with two of those coming in the starting XI.

With Everton having strengthened in the attacking midfield positions in the summer and a number of exciting and talented youngsters coming through the ranks at Goodison, Mirallas was only going to slip further down the pecking order, so his move away makes sense for all parties.

Trump administration to end deportation protection for almost 200000 Salvadorans in 2019
Previous estimates by the department have put the number who will most likely be left without other protections around 200,000. Administration officials have said TPS is supposed to provide a temporary haven for victims, not a permanent status in the US.

No details of the deal were announced by the club but Greek media reported that Everton will loan the 30-year-old player for six months at a cost of 3 million euros.

Mirallas had featured sparingly under Ronald Koeman and caretaker boss David Unsworth in the early stages as Everton struggled, but the current boss has had no reason to call him back as Everton have climbed from 16th to ninth in the league table since then.
