Dennis Adeniran looks on his way out of Everton this summer as he’s failed to make a first-team appearance in his three years at the club.

The 21-year-old has made the matchday squad once at senior level since he joined Everton but hasn’t had another opportunity since.

Which club did Everton loan Cenk Tosun out to in January?

Adeniran’s future ‘remains unclear’, says the Liverpool Echo, as Lewis Warrington is regarded as a brighter midfield prospect. But with the former England U19 international having one year remaining on his deal, Everton would need to locate a suitor if they wish to cash in.

Adeniran joined Everton from Fulham in 2017 and has gone on to make 54 appearances for the U23s, scoring three goals and making three assists. The 21-year-old is behind Andre Gomes, Fabian Delph, Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Morgan Schneiderlin, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Tom Davies in the pecking order, however, so he didn’t stand a chance of getting first-team football.

He was an unused substitute in Everton’s EFL Cup defeat to Leicester City on December 18, 2019, but never managed to kick on from there, so an exit looks inevitable this summer.

Adeniran has not made sufficient enough progression in the reserves and has too many players standing in his way of getting minutes under Carlo Ancelotti.
