Everton have completed the signing of Belgium and Olympiakos striker Kevin Mirallas on a four-year deal, the club have announced.
Blues boss David Moyes had money to spend after the sale of Jack Rodwell to Manchester City, and has opted to strengthen his forward line as he looks to find a partner and backup for Nikica Jelavic. Speaking to the club's official website, Mirallas said: "I am very happy because Everton is a big club and for me it's a very good opportunity.
"I've known Everton have been following me for a while and after talking with the manager I decided coming to Everton was the best opportunity for me.
"I know this is a great club with great supporters and a club that has the ability win a lot of games in the Premier League. That's why I came."
Moyes will be hoping Mirallas can continue his form from last season, where he scored 20 goals in 25 appearances.
Due to his signing taking place after the Friday 12pm deadline, Mirallas will not be available for selection for Everton's Monday night fixture against Manchester United, but will be revealed in front of what should be a capacity crowd at Goodison Park.
