Marouane Fellaini has successfully collected an international hat-trick.
As we've alluded to before on Vital Everton there are three things we fear the most when the international break comes around and our players disperse across the globe.
Number One: Returning with an injury
Number Two: Getting caught misbehaving
Number Three: Speaking to foreign media about potential moves away from Goodison Park.
He might not receive a match ball for his efforts this week, but Everton's talisman has successfully tucked away an international hat-trick.
He joined up with Belgium and went out for a night out that reportedly ended with him being thrown out of a nightclub in the early hours of the morning.
He then missed training with a hip injury which prevented him from playing against Slovakia and leaves him a major doubt for the Manchester United game.
And now it has emerged that he's spoken to the press about the constant links to Chelsea and moves away from Goodison Park.
'I have heard about Chelsea monitoring me, but I have never spoken with them, Throughout my time at Everton, there has been word on the grapevine of interest from some of England`s top teams, but I have never personally sat round the table with any of them.' Fellaini told Belgian media outlet sportwereld.be according to the Daily Mail.
All sounds good so far, but then he almost issues a 'come and get me' plea to Chelsea, before revealing that there is no minimum release clause in the 25-year-olds contract which runs until he summer of 2016.
He continued: 'If Chelsea want me, they need to come up with something, but they have not done so far. For now, I am very happy with Everton. We are fifth, and if we can climb just one more place, and stay there, we can look forward to playing in the Champions` League. Would that make me stay? Maybe yes, because Everton are the team who brought me to England. I have a very good relationship with the manager and my team-mates, and the club are like my family.
'People are talking about Chelsea as if I have already signed, but I am an Everton player, and maybe I will finish the three years left on my contract. If I do end up leaving, it would be up to the club to decide on the price. I have all sorts of clauses in my contract, but there is no fixed fee for releasing me.
