Phil Neville to leave Everton at the end of the season

The 36-year-old Toffees’ captain will leave the club this summer after a eight-year stay at Goodison Park and will then make a decision on whether to hang up his playing boots

Everton have confirmed Phil Neville will be leaving the club when his contract expires this summer.

“It’s been an honour to play for and captain Everton Football Club. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time on Merseyside and will leave with immense pride,” Neville told Everton’s website.

“I would like to thank the Manager, Chairman, all of the staff and the players at Everton for their continued support during my time at the club. I’d also like to pay a special thanks to the fans, who have been amazing over the past eight years and Everton will always have a place in my heart.

“I want to continue to play at the top level as long as I physically can, and will be weighing up my options before making a decision on my next move. I’ll now be doing everything I can to help Everton finish as high up the league table as possible.”
