Fellaini, 24, has admitted he is unlikely to remain at Everton in coming seasons, with Chelsea leading the race to sign the Belgian.

But despite attempts to lure him away from Goodison Park in the January transfer window, Fellaini is in no rush to leave Everton.

"There is interest in me. But Everton are an ambitious club as well," he said. "I don't think they'll let their best players go just like that. I want to play for one of the biggest clubs one day. But I am patient."
