Korede Adedoyin has an uncertain future at Everton this summer. His contract is up in the coming weeks and clubs are reportedly keen on his services. The Toffees are looking to keep Adedoyin at Goodison Park and have offered him a new deal that will keep him at Everton past 2019. Whether he signs it without a guarantee of first-team football remains to be seen, however.

Adedoyin has been prolific at youth level, scoring and creating 15 goals in 21 games in all competitions for the u18s. The Young Toffees finished third in the u18 Premier League this season, amassing 44 points from 22 games. Adedoyin’s form in 2018/19 could give Marco Silva food for thought next season.

Marcel Brands is looking to lower Everton’s average age, so the Nigerian forward could be considered for first-team football in the future. As things stand, however, Adedoyin could be on his way out if he opts against staying. He could be a big loss this summer as the Toffees have developed young talent to first-team level – Jonjoe Kenny, Tom Davies, Ademola Lookman, Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Goodison Park may be the best place for him.
