The Belgium international is sidelined with a hamstring problem picked up in October after initially returning to action too early.

Moyes believes the 25-year-old's absence is taking its toll on his side as they push for a top-four Premier League finish this season.

He told the Daily Mirror: "We've missed Mirallas giving us another edge.

"It might be that we've not really flowed as I would have liked attacking wise.

"It's shown in one or two results. We've missed him too long. It's a problem.

"He's probably missed the bulk of it, 10 or 12 weeks. He was a big part of what we achieved in that early part of the season when we were at our best and played some good stuff."

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
