EPL: Everton announce departure of two senior stars 

Everton announce departure of top stars



Everton have announced that Yerry Mina and Andros Townsend will leave the club.

The Toffees narrowly avoided relegation from the Premier League on the final day of the season.

Goalkeeper Asmir Begovic will also leave after turning down a new contract offer.

Captain Seamus Coleman, midfielder Tom Davies and goalkeeper Andy Lonergan have all been offered new deals.

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.”
