Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini reportedly hands in a transfer request in an attempt to force a deadline-day move to Manchester United.

Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini has reportedly handed in a transfer request in an attempt to force a move to Manchester United.

United have been linked with Fellaini since former Everton boss David Moyes took charge at Old Trafford and have already seen a bid for the Belgian turned down this summer.

United allowed a £23.5m buy-out clause for Fellaini to expire at the end of July before submitting what Everton manager Roberto Martinez described as a "derisory" bid a few weeks later.

The Red Devils have continued their interest in the midfielder, who was pictured at the Toffees' training ground earlier today, where it is rumoured he handed in a transfer request.

No official confirmation has come from the club yet, although they have not denied the rumours either.

Fellaini has scored 33 goals in 177 games for Everton since joining the club in 2008.
