Premier League outfit Everton have, on Friday, provided updates on the futures of no fewer than six members of the club’s first-team setup.
First up come a trio of confirmed departures.
All of Fabian Delph, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Cenk Tosun have been released, it has been confirmed. This comes after those in a position of power at Goodison Park opted against renewing the respective contracts of the players.
And following this trio out the revolving doors on the blue half of Merseyside at the end of the month will be Jonjoe Kenny.
As per Everton’s official announcement: ‘Jonjoe Kenny was also offered fresh terms but has decided to move on in pursuit of a new opportunity elsewhere.’
Stopper Kenny is understood to have offers on the table from a rival Premier League club, as well as a pair of clubs in Germany.
One player who will be staying put at Goodison through the summer and beyond, on the other hand, comes in the form of Asmir Begovic. This comes with the Blues, ahead of the expiration of the shot-stopper’s terms this month, having opted to trigger the one-year extension option in his contract.
Fellow goalkeeper Andy Lonergan, meanwhile, has too been offered a new deal, albeit with it as of yet unclear whether or not he intends to accept.
Everton have released Fabian Delph, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Cenk Tosun upon the expiration of their contracts.
Jonjoe Kenny will also leave Goodison Park after he rejected a new contract.
