Marouane Fellaini has hinted Everton must finish in the top four this season for him to stay. With Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United all watching him closely over the past few months, that has inevitably led to conjecture he will leave Goodison, despite signing a new long-term contract only a year ago.

Fellaini told the Mirror: "I want to play in the Champions League, and if Everton finish in the top four then I'm happy to stay here - I'd love to do that with Everton.

"I want to do that. I want to improve as a player, and I want to give everything for Everton. They brought me here from Standard Liege and gave me my chance to play in the Premier League, and I always want to repay them for that.

"I had two big injuries and they stuck by me and I worked very hard to come back from them. I feel good now in terms of my fitness, and I want to go to the next level, in the Champions League."
