Everton manager Roberto Martinez has confirmed he will hold transfer talks with Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season over the future of Aaron Lennon.
Lennon, 28, moved to Goodison Park during the January transfer window having failed to hold down a first-team role for Mauricio Pochettino's side.
The winger has impressed since his arrival on Merseyside, helping the Toffees discover some form in the second half of the season, fuelling talk the club will look to make his stay a permanent one.
Having started the club's last six league games, Lennon now has four more to prove his worth to the Everton hierarchy.
"Aaron is enjoying his football and his contribution to the team has been significant," Martinez said. "He has got four games left and all I want is for him to enjoy the experience as much as we have benefited from his talent.
"Then, at the end of the season, will be the moment to sit down. A loan is a loan and it means that we are looking for a successful outcome of that. When the loan finishes, you have got a three-way conversation to see where that will take us."
Reports have suggested Tottenham may opt to use Lennon as a makeweight in their attempts to sign Kevin Mirallas during the summer transfer window.
But the Everton boss has once again moved to play down talk of the Belgian winger leaving the club.
"Kevin is a special player for us," Martinez told evertontv. "He brings a goalscoring threat that is so important in football. It's good to see that Kevin is well over his injury now and can challenge for a place in the team.
"It's great to have as many players like Kevin fit and available because it gives you different opportunities to show a threat to the opposition. I'm looking forward to seeing how strong he can finish the season now."
Everton have five games left this season but will be without Lennon in their season-ending match against Tottenham, who is ineligible to face his parent club.
