Fulham manager Martin Jol has told the press that he was priced out of a move for Kevin Mirallas in the summer prior his move to Everton.

“We could have had him (Mirallas) but he was six or seven million,” Jol said. “It is not like Petric on a free or Rodallega on a free or Berbatov.

“Mirallas was not a bargain but they (Everton) did well to pick him up. Mirallas was top scorer in Greece up front where he played on the left and the right and he is doing well.

“Everton don´t buy five or six players. They buy one or two each year and then try to fit them in. That is their strength.

“They don´t have to chop and change all the time. But you can´t say no-one knew about Mirallas. He was playing in this fantastic Belgium team, with all these great players such as (Moussa) Dembele and (Thomas) Vermaelen.

“I think they will be unbelievable in the future and he (Mirallas) is playing in that team.”
