Belgium winger Kevin Mirallas has left Everton to join Royal Antwerp in his home country on a free transfer.

The 31-year-old made 186 appearances and scored 38 goals after signing from Olympiakos in 2012.

He returned on loan at the Greek club for six months in 2018 and spent last season at Serie A side Fiorentina.

On Friday, Everton boss Marco Silva said players like Mirallas who are on the fringes of the first-team squad need to "find a solution".

Speaking about the Belgian and Congolese winger Yannick Bolasie, Silva added: "It is important for them to play as much as they can because if they stay here not playing football it is not the best thing for them."
