Kevin Mirallas is convinced Everton manager David Moyes will commit his long-term future to the club and sign a new contract in the summer.
Moyes’ current deal expires in the summer and he recently revealed he has delayed any decision over his future until the end of the season with the club still in the mix for Champions League football next term. Despite the increasing uncertainty, Mirallas has highlighted his popularity with the club’s supporters, chairman and players.
"Of course I would be keen if he signed, he showed confidence in me by bringing me to club," Mirallas told Sky Sports. "He has been at Everton for many years and is very popular with the fans, chairman and players and I am sure he will sign. I cannot see why he wouldn't because of those reasons."
Along with keeping up pace with the rest of the pack chasing for Champions League qualification, Everton is still in the FA Cup despite a last-gasp Oldham equalizer forcing a replay ahead of a possible quarterfinal place.
Mirallas has admitted that even though the prospect of silverware is superb, a spot in Europe’s elite club competition is a bigger attraction.
"If it was down to me winning a trophy would be great, but Champions League qualification would be fantastic," Mirallas said.
