Everton manager Roberto Martinez has revealed his club and Monaco are in discussions over the future of on-loan striker Lacina Traore.

Lukaku is due to return to parent club Chelsea at the end of the season and Martinez said there had been no discussions about keeping the striker for the longer term. "The only thing we are interested in is Romelu's development, and that is where we get the rewards of an outstanding footballer who can make a difference on the front line," the Toffees boss said. "The final 10 weeks is where you can control the small margins and he is in the perfect frame of mind to be as good as he can be."
