Roberto Martinez has made it clear Marouane Fellaini left the club under Everton’s terms.
The Belgian moved to Manchester United in the final hour of the transfer window but Martinez is satisfied the club were deservedly compensated for the sale.
On Fellaini’s exit he said: “Everything was done on our terms and that’s what is important.
“We wish him well, but I do feel that when you lose a player you need to end up with a squad in better shape and I think that’s what we achieved.
“As you know the contractual situation of Marouane was quite straight forward. His contract (buy-out clause) expired on July 31. From that point on the evaluation was completely different and he had a premium on top.”
