Jagielka fears Everton could lose Fellaini after star turn at Wembley
23:05 GMT, 3 June 2012
Phil Jagielka accepts Everton could lose key midfielder Marouane Fellaini this summer – if the price is right.
Jagielka was impressed with the performance of Fellaini when in action for England against Belgium in Saturday's friendly international at Wembley.
The central defender knows how crucial Fellaini is to the Toffees but is realistic about their chances of keeping him.

He said: 'Unfortunately, with the way the club is, if somebody comes in with a 20million-plus offer, the chances are he's going to be sold.
'We love Felli and we'd love him to stay. There's not been that much transfer talk but we know the situation we're in.
'We bought him for 16 million and I don't think the club would take a loss.
'He's developed in that time, especially in the last few games of the season, just behind the front one, and he's destroyed teams.'
Jagielka added: 'In terms of marking Felli, he's faster than I remember. He must have put a yard on. I can't stop laughing when I see him and it's not just his hair.
'He's a fantastic player. Belgium have got a few players for the future and, once they kick, on they'll be a team to watch.'
Eye on the ball: Fellaini impressed for Everton against England at Wembley
Jagielka is relishing the prospect of his first tournament at Euro 2012 and admits to feeling comfortable alongside former Everton team-mate Joleon Lescott.
The pair were reunited against Belgium after John Terry (hamstring) and Gary Cahill (jaw) were both substituted.
He said: 'Gary went down early and we made one defensive substitution so I wasn't expecting to get on but JT (Terry) had a little niggle so it was nice to get another cap.
'Myself and Joleon have played together a lot, we know each other, we get on well off the pitch. When you play together it does feel comfortable.
'We had some good seasons at Everton. Joleon moved on and has done well for himself since. But when you've played with someone 100 times or so, it makes it that little bit easier.'

Jagielka added: 'Two clean sheets against Norway and Belgium is brilliant. I wouldn't say we played amazing but we created one or two decent chances and Welbs (Welbeck) had a fantastic finish.
'We've a week or so before the France game and we'll be looking to sharpen up at the other end of the pitch and hopefully put in a good performance against France.
'We will go home now and spend time with the family and when we're back, it's all ready to go for the Euros.
'We'll get suited and booted on Wednesday, fly out there and that's when it will feel a little bit more real.
'I've never experienced this. I'm looking forward to meeting up on Tuesday, a training session on Wednesday and then we fly out.'
