London - Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has expressed annoyance over the ongoing speculation about his playing future.

The Belgium international, 23, announced in March that he will not sign an extension to his current contract, which has two years left to run.

He has since been linked with clubs including Manchester United and his former side Chelsea, but says the rumour mill has got out of hand.

"As long as I didn't make a public statement about my situation please stay out of my business ok?" he wrote on Twitter late on Sunday night.

"Some media these days are annoying man."

Lukaku joined Everton from Chelsea in a club-record £28 million transfer in 2014.

He is the leading scorer in the Premier League this season with 24 goals and is closing in on the Golden Boot.

Meanwhile Dominic Calvert-Lewin expressed his delight at being handed a new five-year contract with Everton.

The 20-year-old former Sheffield United forward, who has also spent time on loan with Stalybridge Celtic and Northampton Town, joined the Toffees in 2016.

He has made 20 appearances in all competitions for the club this season, scoring one goal.
