CLEAR OUT: Everton have released players including Josh King

CLEAR OUT: Everton have released players including Josh King

Everton have released players including Josh King and Theo Walcott as they plan ahead for the 2021/22 Premier League season.

After a season in which Everton tailed off to finish 10th, the Merseyside club announced that a number of players would be released via the club website.

The list includes Josh King who they only signed from Bournemouth in February. The Norwegian striker was given a short-term deal but has not done enough to earn himself an extension.

It is also the end of his Everton career for winger Theo Walcott who was on loan at Southampton for the 2019/20 season. Walcott made 85 appearances for Everton, scoring 11 goals and providing 9 assists.

The other senior players leaving are Yannick Bolasie and Mo Besic, both of whom have not featured for Everton for a significant period of time.

An Everton statement said: “Everton can confirm Joshua King, Theo Walcott, Yannick Bolasie and Muhamed Besic will leave the club when their current contracts expire at the end of the month, while on-loan goalkeeper Robin Olsen will return to his parent club Roma.

“Everton wishes to thank all departing players for their contribution throughout their time at the club.”

Now that Everton have released players, they can look to add to their squad but they will first need to find a new manager following the departure of Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid.
