Everton youth player Korede Adedoyin could be facing a Goodison Park exit this summer upon the expiry of his contract.
According to All Nigeria Soccer, the Lagos-born youngster is ‘mulling over’ his future with the Merseyside outfit as he nears the end of his current deal.
The Blues boast a successful academy system, after worldwide star Wayne Rooney went from youth graduate to international and domestic star. Up and coming starlet Anthony Gordon is another example of the promising talent that can break through into Everton’s first team, as is Tom Davies.
Should Anthony Gordon be given more time in the first team?
However, Adedoyin hasn’t had such luck with the Toffees so far. The 19-year-old was sent out on loan at the start of the season to join Scottish side Hamilton, but it was cut short after he failed to make a single appearance for the Accies. Since his return to England, the winger hasn’t featured for Everton’s reserve team either (via Transfermarkt).
Now, he could face being released if the club opt not to offer him a new contract. Despite Adedoyin’s history with the club – after signing when he was ten-years-old – now looks like the time for him to take on a new career curve. It seems Carlo Ancelotti doesn’t have any plans to integrate him into the first team otherwise he would have already been introduced, as is the case with Gordon.
It will be a tough pill to swallow but ultimately a decision that will benefit him sooner than he realises.
What do you think, Blues? Should the club offer Adedoyin a new deal or let him leave this summer? Have your say in the comments below…
