EXCLUSIVE : According to renowned journalist David Ornstein, there is no evidence to suggest that a £35,000-per-week player is seeking to leave Everton


Everton fans are demanding more information on their summer transfer plans given how adept they have been in the market.

The three signings have already exceeded expectations, and what was even more shocking was that they did so with minimal spending.

However, there is an expectation that this unbridled positivity will soon have to be replaced by devastating sales.

But David Ornstein tried to suggest the opposite.

David Ornstein brings a fresh update on Jarrad Branthwaite

The respected transfer journalist spoke to GIVEMESPORT in an attempt to provide an update on Everton’s transfer fortunes.

And while they have already proved extremely active in the market, there remains a looming threat as to who else could leave Goodison Park this summer.

Deciding to give his verdict on the previous saga, Ornstein gave the following positive update: “It was previously reported that he has agreed personal terms with Manchester United, but I have no evidence to suggest that he is unhappy at Everton, if not, he should be the best professional and will continue to develop positively in his career if he stays there.

“So we’ll have to wait and see if Manchester United come back. I don’t think they’ll go that much higher than the talks I’ve had, but then it will be a test of Everton’s resolve. But so far they haven’t even blinked.’

If Jarrad Branthwaite had stayed it would have been a win for Everton

If Everton can somehow convince Jarrad Branthwaite to stay for another season, it will be a miracle.

And it would also represent a much-needed change in the narrative that has so often seen the Toffees bullied in situations like this.

Whether it’s a player’s request to leave or the club’s desperate desire to sell, it almost always ends with the star leaving Goodison Park. John Stones, Romelu Lukaku, Richarlison, Wayne Rooney. The list is honestly endless and goes back decades.

So, even if it’s just another Premier League campaign, keeping the £35,000-a-week Branthwaite could prove crucial in not only changing that narrative, but ensuring Sean Dyche has all the tools he needs for leading his team through a historic season finale at the Old Lady.

In what promises to be a long, highly emotional period, Evertonians deserve to enjoy one last swansong at this historic stadium. Making sure their best players are there to play will be a big part of making that dream come true.
