Davies to leave Everton when contract expires

Tom Davies will leave Everton when his current contract expires at the end of this month after turning down the offer of a new deal with the club.

The 24-year-old midfielder has been at Everton since the age of 11, progressing through the club's academy and making his debut as a 17-year-old against Southampton in April 2016.

Davies became the youngest captain in the club's history and his leadership extended to the England ranks, where he captained his country at every level from U15s to U21s.

Davies went on to make 179 appearances for Everton, scoring seven goals.

Everton director of football Kevin Thelwell said: "We offered Tom a new contract, but he feels he has reached the stage in his career where he needs regular first-team football and, as a result, he wants to look at alternative options away from Everton."
