Cape Town - Everton manager Roberto Martinez has revealed that loanee Aaron Lennon will not discuss his future at Goodison Park until the off-season.

Lennon joined the Toffees on loan from Tottenham in January and has impressed so far during his time at Goodison, making nine appearances in the league and scoring two goals.

The winger, who's loan expires at the end of the season, now has a further four games to prove his worth to the club's board as he is ineligible to face Spurs on the final day.

Everton do have the option of making the 28-year-old's loan permanent but Martinez says any talk over his future can wait until the end of the current campaign.

"Aaron is enjoying his football and his contribution to the team has been significant," the manager is quoted as saying by Press Association.

"He has got four games left and all I want is for him to enjoy every single second of it and make sure he enjoys the experience as much as we have benefited from his talent.

"Then, at the end of the season, will be the moment to sit down. A loan is a loan and it means that we are looking for a successful outcome out of that.

"Then, when the loan finishes, you have got a three-way conversation to see where that will take us. But the focus now is to see 'Azza' enjoying his football in the next four games."
