Everton: Tom Davies could reject new deal and leave this summer
Everton reporter for The Athletic Greg O’Keeffe says that Tom Davies could turn down a new contract offer and leave this summer.
The Lowdown: Out of contract
Davies is out of contract at Goodison Park in the summer, meaning that he could leave as a free agent at the end of the season.
The central midfielder has only made a mere 17 appearances in total so far this term, with only five of them starts, and only four coming in the Premier League (Transfermarkt).
The Latest: Summer exit?
Writing for The Athletic, O’Keeffe says that there is little to suggest that Davies will be offered a new deal at the Merseyside club.
The journalist adds that even if he is, there is a chance that he would turn it down, and leave this summer.
The Verdict: Time to go…
Unfortunately for Davies, he has not been able to cement a regular place in the first team, and so it is time for all parties to part ways.
He did come on for a 10-minute cameo in the 1-0 win at home to Brentford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, but has largely played a bit-part role under Sean Dyche.
On £25,000-per-week, Davies is one of the lowest earners in the squad, and so the Toffees will not miss him too much should he leave.
