Mason Holgate, the Everton player, has received advice that he can depart from the club this summer as part of the squad rebuilding process by the Blues, reports the EvertonNews.
The 26-year-old is said to be on the verge of securing a loan move away from Goodison Park, with newly promoted Sheffield United showing interest in acquiring the services of the defender.
According to talkSPORT reports, Everton is keen to reduce the wage expenditure during this summer transfer window in order to accommodate new signings, and Holgate is among the players the club aims to offload.
As per report: “Sheffield United are in advanced talks with Everton over signing Mason Holgate on loan, talkSPORT understands.
Centre-back Holgate has been told he can leave Goodison Park as Everton attempt to trim their wage bill and make space for new arrivals.”
Mason Holgate, known for his versatility, had a limited impact on Everton’s Premier League campaign last season, making only eight appearances. In fact, his performances have been inconsistent at best for several years, occasionally posing a defensive risk for Everton. It is evident that the 26-year-old has not fulfilled his early promise, as indicated by his lack of involvement under Sean Dyche, having featured only four times since the manager’s arrival in January.
