Jonjoe Kenny’s 16 year association with Everton is coming to an end

Everton academy product Jonjoe Kenny was never able to reach his full potential. He was never truly considered a part of Everton’s future as the club continued to wander in the transfer market in the search of a Seamus Coleman successor despite Kenny being present at the club.

At best, he was viewed as a squad rotation player. His impressive loan spell at Schalke did spark off a debate over Kenny’s regular inclusion in the side. But soon, it became clear as then manager Carlo Ancelotti preferred to deploy Mason Holgate or Ben Godfrey over Kenny in the right back position when Coleman was injured.

With Nathan Patterson arriving earlier this year, it is certain that Kenny isn’t in Lampard’s plans. Although, Kenny did manage to get adequate game time this season, playing 18 games this season, but hasn’t done anything exemplary to persuade the club hierarchy to offer him a new deal.

Long last, a separation between Kenny and his boyhood club will happen. Kenny’s wages weren’t astronomical as he earned £15,000 per week, amounting to a little under £800,000 yearly.
