Report: Everton plan to sell 25-year-old this summer

According to Football Insider, Everton are planning to sell Matthew Pennington in the summer transfer window.

The 25-year-old central defender, on loan at Hull City in the Championship at the moment, has been at the Toffees since 2015.

However, the Englishman has failed to establish himself in the Everton first team and is out of contract at the end of next season.

Football Insider has claimed that the Merseyside outfit plan to cash in on the former England Under-19 International this summer.

Leaving Everton

Pennington is now 25 years of age and has made only a handful of appearances for the Everton first team.

It is hard to see the defender, who can also operate as a right-back, make an impact at Goodison Park.

Having been out on loan to various clubs over the years, including Coventry City, Leeds United and Ipswich Town, it would make sense for him to find a permanent home.

According to WhoScored, Pennington has made eight starts and one substitute appearance in the Championship for Hull so far this season.
