Two key Everton players are offered new contracts, though one is doubting

Everton has made contract offers to Seamus Coleman and Tom Davies as they begin preparations for the 2023-24 season following their successful fight to secure Premier League survival, as relays the SMole. Both Coleman and Davies are currently in the final month of their contracts.

Seamus Coleman, who joined Everton from Sligo Rovers in 2009, is widely expected to accept the new deal. The Republic of Ireland international has amassed an impressive 409 appearances for the club, contributing 28 goals and 32 assists throughout his tenure.

According to The Guardian, Tom Davies is evaluating his options before making a decision on his future with the club. The 24-year-old midfielder had limited playing time in the 2022-23 season, making only 19 appearances in the Premier League and failing to start a match under manager Sean Dyche, who took charge in January. Davies, a product of Everton’s academy, has reportedly attracted interest from several other Premier League clubs.

Additionally, Everton has extended a contract offer to third-choice goalkeeper Andy Lonergan. However, Asmir Begovic, the team’s other goalkeeper, will be leaving the club after declining a new contract. Andros Townsend and Yerry Mina are also set to depart Everton as the club has opted not to offer them contract extensions.

Isaac Price, a young midfielder who came through Everton’s academy, will also be leaving the club after rejecting a new contract. The 19-year-old is expected to join Belgian side Standard Liege.

On a positive note, Everton has exercised the option to extend Abdoulaye Doucoure’s contract until the summer of 2024. Doucoure played a crucial role in Everton’s final-day victory over Bournemouth, scoring the winning goal that secured their Premier League status.
