Everton have rejected a loan offer from West Ham for winger Kevin Mirallas, according to Sky sources.

Sky Sports News understands Everton have received a number of offers to take the Belgium international on loan, including from the Hammers and Mirallas' former side Olympiakos.

It is also understood Everton would only consider offers for a permanent deal.

West Ham are keen to bolster their midfield options having allowed Robert Snodgrass to join Aston Villa on a season-long loan.

Mirallas has featured four times this season for Everton, but was left out of the matchday squad for last Sunday's 2-0 defeat at Chelsea with manager Ronald Koeman questioning his attitude.

Koeman said: "Mirallas was out because he is struggling to deal with moments in the season and with disappointments.

"Everybody can be disappointed but I expect from everybody to be part of the team and if somebody is showing that his attitude is not the same, I make decisions."
