Kevin became Everton’s third summer arrival of 2012 when he joined the Club from Greek champions Olympiakos, penning a four-year deal.
A forward who can operate centrally or on either wing, he started out in the same Standard Liege youth academy as Marouane Fellaini but soon moved over the border to Lille, where he broke into the first-team ranks.
He made his debut as a teenager in 2004/05 and gradually increased his involvement over the following three seasons before switching to St Etienne.
Kevin was a regular for Les Verts before completing a move to Olympiakos, initially on loan, in 2010.
His record in Greece was superb as he plundered 14 goals from 27 appearances in his first campaign and 20 from 25 in his second, earning him the club’s player of the season award.
He also helped Olympiakos take the Greek league title in both seasons he spent at the Karaiskakis Stadium.
The 24-year-old has forged a reputation as a skillful flair player and is also comfortable on set-pieces.
Part of the Belgium squad that includes Fellaini and some of Europe’s other top-rated players, he is a regular for his national team.
Mirallas made his debut as a late sub in a 3-1 win over Aston Villa and four days later bagged a brace on his home bow as Everton thrashed Leyton Orient in the League Cup.
The pacy Belgian netted his first Premier League goal away at Swansea but his early season form was halted by a number of hamstring injuries. He managed to overcome those setbacks in the second half of the season to establish himself as a fans’ favourite and he was awarded with the Goal of the Season at the annual End of Season award dinner for his outstanding solo effort against Stoke City at Goodison.
He scored an equally spectacular goal away at Tottenham a week later. His final goals of the season came against West Ham United in the last home fixture of the season when he bagged a brace to finish the season with nine goals in all competitions.
Mirallas continued to be an important player in the 2013/14 campaign, netting nine goals in 37 appearances.
He was named in the Belgium squad for the World Cup in Brazil.
Contracted until: June 2016.
