Everton future not my priority - Vlasic

15th April 2019, 11:48 by James Mason

Nikola Vlasic says he is intent on ending the season well with CSKA Moscow and will make a decision on his Everton future this summer.

Croatia international Vlasic arrived at Goodison Park in August 2017 from Hajduk Split but he struggled to make an impact in his debut season, appearing in just 12 Premier League games.

The 21-year-old midfielder was shipped out on a season-long loan to CSKA last summer and he has enjoyed his time in Russia, scoring five goals from 20 league matches to help the club to fourth in the table.

Vlasic, whose current deal with the Toffees runs out in the summer of 2022, has been linked with a host of clubs in recent weeks and a permanent departure from Merseyside is expected.

However, when speaking to Sport Express about his Everton future, he said: "There are people who are responsible for transfers. Let them deal with this issue. I've decided to focus on the final part of the championship in Russia.

"I know that the final word will be mine. But for now, I'm not ready to talk about the future. Nobody has called from Everton."
