Report: Yet another Everton player could leave due to broken promises

James McCarthy Everton

James McCarthy could leave Everton in the summer transfer window, according to a report.

Everton midfielder James McCarthy could leave the club in the summer transfer window, according to The Daily Mail.

It has been reported by the British newspaper that the Premier League club have failed to “fulfil promises over an improved contract.”

McCarthy joined the Toffees from Wigan Athletic in the summer of 2013, and was assured that he will get an improved deal if his performances were good.

The 24-year-old defensive midfielder has kept his end of the bargain, but it has been reported by The Daily Mail that Everton have not made a new offer to the Republic of Ireland international.

McCarthy’s alleged situation is similar to that of his teammate Kevin Mirallas, who claimed last week that Everton have broken promises they made to him (click here to read more).

“There are promises broken and it makes for a somewhat awkward relationship with the coach,” the Liverpool Echo quoted the 27-year-old as saying. “Soon, I will have a conversation with him.”

McCarthy and Mirallas are two of the better players in the current Everton squad, and losing them will be a blow to the team.

The Merseyside outfit endured a disappointing 2014-15 Premier League campaign and need their best players to challenge for a top-four finish next season.
