Everton will not reportedly be disciplining midfielder Marouane Fellaini for suggesting he wanted to leave next year. His comments, made while on international duty, are known to have been greeted with disappointment and surprise by the club considering the 24 year old only signed a lucrative five-year contract last November.

The Belgian international sought to diffuse the comments, which it is understood he does not deny saying during a press conference after training with his national side in Anderlecht on Saturday, by issuing a statement on his Facebook page.
