Everton are prepared to offload the Frenchman in the coming weeks, if they receive a bid of around £15 million.
It was only two years ago that Everton bought Schneiderlin from Manchester United for a fee of £24 million (BBC Sport), meaning that they will make a loss on the 29-year-old.
Everton’s failure to make profit on Schneiderlin rather highlights the change in transfer strategy that they have made since Marcel Brands arrived.
The Toffees are now targeting youngsters who they feel will have masses of re-sale value when they do come to sell.
Schneiderlin’s two and a half seasons at Everton have been mixed in terms of success.
The defensive midfielder has looked brilliant at times, but on other occasions his form has dipped.
Schneiderlin actually started for Everton fairly regularly towards the back end of this season, but Marco Silva still seems to be preparing to offload the central midfielder.
