Diniyar Bilyaletdinov insists he will not be looking to leave Everton in January as he battles to reclaim his place in David Moyes' starting line-up.
The Russian winger has started only two games in the Premier League this season and has been an unused substitute in the Toffees' last three matches in all competitions.
The 26-year-old, however, will not be demanding a New Year exit as he wants to stay at Goodison Park and prove himself to manager Moyes.
"I want to stay here and prove something," Bilyaletdinov told the Liverpool Echo.
"I've got my agent, and maybe he's got something (in the summer) but I'd say not now please.
"I think every manager has to choose certain players for certain games based on his vision for how the team should play.
"I can only work and wait for the pre-match meeting. If you play or don't play you still need to be focused even if it's just for 10 minutes on the pitch because you can still change a game in that time."
