Not all doom and gloom at Goodison Park as £59m Everton financial news emerges

Everton have certainly had their financial issues in recent times, with the club looking to put those issues behind them with their impending takeover by 777 Partners.

The issues have transpired onto the pitch, with the Toffees involved in two successive Premier League relegation battles.

And a third successive relegation battle may just be on the cards this time around if the club are not careful, with Sean Dyche’s side currently sitting 15th

However, it has not all been doom and gloom at Goodison Park, with the Toffees proving that they know what they are doing in one important area.

As per Squawka, Everton have made £59million from selling players that had been on loan at Championship clubs between 2018/19 and 2022/23. That figure was generated with the sales of 18 loanees.

Only Chelsea (£163million), Brighton (£73million) and Liverpool (£71million) sit above the Toffees in the list. They are well ahead of the likes of Premier League giants Manchester City (£24million) and Manchester United (£13million).

The £59million total can definitely help Everton in their quest to stay in the top flight and avoid an unthinkable relegation to the second division.

New faces were brought in during the summer transfer window, but it looks like manager Dyche will need a few more to keep his side well above the bottom three.

Continuing to let players leave, however, will also be key in keeping things right at Goodison Park, with the club’s approach to loan players clearly working well in recent times, at least in terms of money made.

In other Everton news, Dwight McNeil has sent a five-word message to one of his teammates after his goal against Brentford.
