Ex-Everton winger Kevin Mirallas lifts lid on his move to Royal Antwerp

Former Everton winger Kevin Mirallas has lifted the lid on his move to Royal Antwerp.

Mirallas claimed Antwerp sporting director Luciano D'Onofrio spoke to him every day during the summer as he waited for Everton's demands to go down.

"Antwerp have been following me since May," Mirallas told RTBF. "I also spoke to Club Brugge and Anderlecht, but Everton asked for a lot of money to buy off the final year of my contract."

"True to his nature, Luciano D'Onofrio waited until the last day for the price to fall.

"But before that, he called me every day and showed that he really wanted me to come.

"Eventually, he was able to get me on a free transfer."
