Everton manager Roberto Martinez will next month hold talks with forward Steven Naismith, according to the Mail Online.
The Scotland international has made just four starts in the Premier League so far this season, with all three of his goals coming in 3-1 win over champions Chelsea back in September – a game in which he came off the bench.
Despite that incredible treble, the former Rangers man has struggled for hold down a regular first team place with Romelu Lukaku, Arouna Kone and Gerard Deulofeu ahead of him in the pecking order.
Naismith moved to Goodison Park from Ibrox on a free transfer in the summer of 2012 and has so racked up one hundred and twenty-two appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring twenty-five goals.
However, his only game-time I the past six weeks came in the Toffees’ 2-0 League Cup quarter final win over Middlesbrough earlier this month.
