Jean-Philippe Gbamin will be parting ways with Everton in the summer transfer window despite there being a year left on his contract.

That’s according to the 27-year-old’s agent who confirms that he will not be returning to Goodison Park once his loan spell at Trabzonspor runs out.

Bernard Collignon, his agent, has even said that he could continue his career in Russia but will not feature for the Toffees again.

He told Sport 24, “After a loan spell at Trabzonspor in Turkey, Gbamin still has a year left on his contract with Everton, but the player will not return to the English club. Continuing your career in Russia? Everything is possible. In the summer, we’ll see if there will be interest from the RPL.”


Signing Gbamin certainly will go down as one of Everton’s worst transfer decisions of all time and it’s a good thing that his agent has spoken out.

No Toffees fan would want him back at the club and it only makes sense to sell him in the final summer of his contract at Goodison Park.

Per the BBC, Everton paid a mouth-watering £25million fee in order to acquire the services of the Ivory Coast international from Mainz.

However, since then, he’s managed to just play eight games for them and has been injured for the majority of his time at the club.

What’s even more surprising is that this season he’s already played 18 league games and does not appear to have any serious injury concerns.

The Toffees must start looking for potential buyers right away as they’ve got plenty of other financial issues to deal with in the summer.
