Everton are steadfast in their desire to keep him at least until the summer.
“When you are right in the middle of the season I think players understand you can’t sell someone if you can’t replace him. January is a window to solve problems with players who are not featuring as often as they feel they should. January doesn’t even come into consideration. We’ll never lose anyone in January unless it is somebody who hasn’t been playing and we need to find a solution. If he is a top performer, it’s not even a consideration.” Martinez said.
