Everton’s club captain Phil Jagielka has announced that he is to leave Everton FC. Writing on his Instagram he says “It’s been hard to confirm my situation for next season as that decision hadn’t been fully made by the club until now, unfortunately my journey at Everton has come to an end after 12 fantastic seasons, I have been lucky enough to play over 380 games and lucky enough to be club captain for 6 years”.
He continues “All I can say is thanks to all the players I’ve played along side, all the staff that have helped me in their own way, The Chairman and of course the Amazing fans. Wishing everyone associated with this special clubs the very best for the future!”
Jagielka, 36, played 322 games for Everton and scored 14 goals. He will be surely missed at the heart of our defence and has been a faithful servant of Everton FC since he joined the club from Sheffield United in 2007.
