Fiorentina winger Kevin Mirallas happy to have left Everton

Fiorentina winger Kevin Mirallas is happy to have left Everton.

The Belgian international secured a season-long loan move to the Serie A side last month after seeing himself fall down the pecking order at Everton under new manager Marco Silva.

Mirallas told Gazzetta dello Sport: “(Pantaleo) Corvino looked at me two years ago, but at that time Everton wanted a crazy number and the chance to join Fiorentina had escaped, and the same happened with other prestigious clubs.

“I thought I'd finished my journey in Liverpool, I was looking for new challenges, there was also Tottenham who were courting me, the charm of the Premier League, the chance to participate in the Champions, new emotions, but nothing."
