Isaac Price has bid farewell to Everton after making the decision to leave the club this summer. The 19-year-old’s contract with Everton will expire at the end of June, and he has reached an agreement to join Standard Liege, a Belgian team, writes the Everton.News.
Expressing his sentiments on Instagram, Price stated that he will never forget his time at the club. This marks the end of a 12-year tenure with Everton for the Northern Ireland international. It is unfortunate to see a player with great potential depart the club, especially considering that Everton will only receive £400,000 in UEFA compensation, as reported by The Athletic.
Price made his debut for the Toffees in March 2022 during a 2-0 victory against Boreham Wood in the FA Cup at Goodison Park. Furthermore, he made his Premier League debut on the final day of the 2021/22 season as Everton suffered a 5-1 defeat against Arsenal. Given that Price has been a part of Everton’s academy since the age of seven, it is regrettable to see him leave the club under such disappointing circumstances.
He said: “I want to take this opportunity to give my thanks to everyone who has supported me throughout my time at Everton FC – my teammates, the staff and most importantly you the supporters.
It has been an honour to grow up at this club, the passion you give for this team and this city is something that will stay with me forever.
I will never forget the incredible memories and experiences I have had here. Thank you again for everything, Isaac.”
