Everton winger Kevin Mirallas has sealed an emotional return to his former side Olympiakos on loan.

The club have confirmed that the winger will return to the Greek side and it is being reported that Olympiakos have the option to sign the player permanently at the end of the season.

The 30-year-old has struggled for game time under both Ronald Koeman and Sam Allardyce this season.

The Belgian international has started just twice in the Premier League, coming off the bench on three further occasions.

After a busy summer of transfers, including the likes of Ggylfi Sigurdsson and Ademola Lookman last January, Mirallas has fallen down the pecking order after joining Everton in 2012.

Mirallas has not featured for Everton since starting against Apollon Limassol in the Europa League back in early December.

His last appearance in the Premier League came during the humbling 4-1 defeat to Southampton in late November.
