Speaking to Belgian Newspaper HetNieuwsblad, Fellaini said "I begin now to my fifth season at Everton. This will be one of my last. I've seen everything. In January or at the end of the season I would look for another club or league"

"It's a pity that Vadis did not come to Everton. It may come later on" Fellaini added while speaking about Vadis transfer.
