Lukas Jutkiewicz has revealed he believes his future lies away from Everton.
The striker is currently playing on-loan at Motherwell this season.
Jutkiewicz insists there wasnâ€™t a hint of jealousy as he watched contemporaries Dan Gosling and Jack Rodwell inspire the Goodison club to overcome Manchester United last week. In terms of Jutkiewiczâ€™s own journey, he regards Saturdayâ€™s visit of in-form Kilmarnock as just as important.
â€śMe and those two boys [Gosling and Rodwell] are close friends,â€ť the former Swindon Town youngster told The Herald. â€śThings happen at different stages for some people but those lads have been given their chance and have taken it. I am delighted for them but this is just as important for me because this is my chance to show what I can do.
â€śEveryoneâ€™s situation is different. Iâ€™m probably looking to get away from Everton. I think my time is up there, although the manager has to decide what he wants to do with me.
â€śBut I am the happiest that I have been in years in terms of playing my football and in the environment I am in and I wouldnâ€™t want to change it. If there is a possibility that I could be here for longer than just this season I would love to explore that option but it is kind of out of my hands.â€ť
