Everton Offers New Contracts To Players

Everton can confirm the Club has offered new contracts to captain Seamus Coleman, midfielder Tom Davies and goalkeeper Andy Lonergan.

Defender Yerry Mina and forward Andros Townsend will leave Everton when their current contracts expire at the end of this month, along with Asmir Begovic after the goalkeeper rejected a new deal offered by the Club.

As confirmed last month, the Blues have activated the option to extend midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure’s contract until the end of June 2024.

New contracts have also been offered to Ryan Astley and Lewis Gibson, while the Club has activated options to extend deals for Jack Barrett and Mackenzie Hunt until the end of June 2024.

Meanwhile, Einar Iversen will depart Everton when his current deal expires at the end of June, as will Isaac Price following the midfielder’s decision to turn down a new contract.

At Academy level, professional contracts have been offered to Owen Barker, Halid Djankpata, Isaac Heath, Edward Jones and Jack Tierney, with Shae Cahill, Troy Smikle-James, Charlie Wilson and Harry Wright leaving the Club when their current deals expire at the end of this month.

Sam Coughlan and Saja Manafa, who are both currently injured, have not been offered professional contracts but will stay at Everton to continue their rehabilitation.

Everton Director of Football, Kevin Thelwell, said: “Everyone at the Club wishes to thank all departing players for their contribution throughout their time at Everton.

“Many of them have developed through our Academy and given their all each time they’ve put on the royal blue shirt.

“We’re also grateful to our senior men's players who are moving on, including Yerry - whose passion and determination for Everton was evident by how highly he was thought of by our fans - to Andros and Asmir who were consummate professionals during their two years at the Club.

“We wish all of them the best with the next chapters in their careers.

“We have also offered new contracts to players and we will continue talking with them as we look to build a competitive squad for Sean Dyche and his staff for the new season.”
