Everton forward Kevin Mirallas has joined former club Olympiacos on loan until the end of the season.

The 30-year-old moved to Goodison Park back in August 2012 but has featured just 13 times this term, with only five of those appearances coming in the Premier League.

Mirallas last played for the Toffees in their 3-0 Europa League victory over Apollon Limassol on December 7.

Mirallas has 59 caps for Belgium and will hope his move to Olympiacos will aid his bid to be selected for this summer's World Cup in Russia.

The Belgian, who helped Olympiacos to consecutive championships in 2011 and 2012, scored 38 times in nearly 200 appearances for Everton.
