Marouane Fellaini: Happy to stay at Everton

The 25-year-old Belgium midfielder, who has a release clause in his contract, has been heavily linked with a move either to Arsenal or to join up with former Toffees boss David Moyes at Manchester United.

But Moyes' replacement is not concerned.

Quoted in the Sun on Sunday, Martinez said: "I don't think it is an issue.

"You are not talking about a player who is out of the squad or in negotiations with another club. I won't look to speak to him about this because there is nothing to speak about.

"What I want is him to be ready for the next season, to be ready to take an important role at the club and understand that it is a big season for him.

"As an individual, he has got an exciting year in front of him and I don't think he is personally thinking, 'Am I going to be here?' I don't think that's in his head."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
