Everton centre-back Yerry Mina is looking for ‘potential exit routes’ out of the club, according to a significant update from transfer expert Dean Jones.
The Lowdown: Mina’s Everton career fading
The Colombian’s spell at Goodison Park has been an up-and-down one, with injuries too often halting his progress and performances not always consistent.
The 28-year-old’s current Everton deal expires at the end of this campaign and it looks as though his exit is inevitable.
The Latest: Defender keen on exit
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones claimed that Mina wants to leave the Toffees in the near future:
“You understand why this is on the cards at the moment, I think his representatives are looking at potential exit routes.”
The Verdict: Right time to leave
Mina is a good player who can be dominant on his day – former Everton defender Michael Ball has called him ‘fantastic’ and a ‘monster’ – but January or next summer feels like the ideal time for him to enjoy a fresh challenge.
As mentioned, Tarkowski and Coady have forged a good understanding at centre-back – Everton have only conceded 12 goals in as many league games this season – and it is hard to see that pairing being broken up.
Whether or not Mina departs in January or the summer remains to be seen, but it would now be a huge surprise if he was offered a new contract at Goodison Park.
