Cape Town - Everton manager Roberto Martinez will offer Belgian winger Kevin Mirallas a new deal at the end of the season.

The Liverpool Echo report that Roberto Martinez will offer the "star" attacking forward an improved contract.

The 27-year-old Belgian has been back to his brilliant best after spending two months on the sidelines with a hamstring injury.

Martinez admits Miralles is not the kind of player that is easy to replace.

“It’s not easy to find a footballer with that quality who can bring that spark,” Martinez said. 

“It’s an important period in the season now for everyone to get concentrating on the team.”

Miralles' importance to the Toffees' cause has not gone unnoticed by his Spanish manager.

“He is a wonderful footballer - the type of player who brings you something different to the side in the final third.

“Kevin still has a long term contract with us but we’ll always look behind the scenes to do as much work as we can in those individual aspects. At the moment there’s nothing to mention." added the Everton manager.
