Everton Playmaker Marouane Fellaini brushed off rumours of his move to Manchester United.

And he stressed his desire that he is staying with his present squad by declaring his “destiny” is with the Toffees.

“My destiny is with Everton, it’s as simple as that,” Fellaini told the on Thursday. “After that, you never know what can happen, but we still speak of one of the greatest English clubs.”

The Belgium international has been speculated to follow manager David Moyes to Old Trafford in the summer as the latter tries to make his mark after taking over from the retired Sir Alex Ferguson.

But the 25-year-old Fellaini, who scored against the USA in a friendly Wednesday night, claims he is happy at Merseyside and has committed his future to Everton despite losing the manager who brought him to the club.

The Toffees wound up sixth in the Premier League this season, ahead of local rivals Liverpool, and Fellaini believes whoever takes over at Goodison Park will inherit a club ready for success.

“The framework and the basics are there,” the curly-haired Fellaini said. “It is in this sense that I mean the departure of the coach does not change anything for me. Despite everything he has done for the club, we always have enough quality to continue to shine.’’
