Everton boss Roberto Martinez will consider extending the stay of on-loan AS Monaco striker Lacina Traore.

Traore has featured for just 61 minutes in a single appearance since arriving on loan from Monaco in January and is unlikely to feature again.

But Martinez has not ruled out the prospect of retaining the services of the Ivory Coast international next season.

"We will sit down in the summer and review the situation," he said.

"I know Lacina is frustrated he has not been able to play more minutes for us.

"We need to speak to his parent club and see what their thoughts are but he is a very interesting player for us."
