Report: Everton's Brendan Galloway wanted by Wigan and Luton

Marco Silva the head coach

Everton are reportedly willing to let Brendan Galloway leave on a free transfer this summer.

According to a report from The Sun on Sunday (9/6; page 59), Everton could be prepared to let Brendan Galloway leave Goodison Park on a free transfer with Wigan Athletic and Luton Town keen on signing the defender.

Galloway has endured a difficult time with the Toffees. It had appeared during Roberto Martinez's tenure that the 23-year-old was well on his way towards securing a regular first-team role as he made 15 Premier League appearances during the 2015/16 campaign.

 

Disappointing loan spells at West Brom and Sunderland followed over the next two years however, and he spent this past season only featuring for Everton's under-23s in Premier League 2.

Perhaps unsurprisingly therefore, The Sun on Sunday (9/6; page 59) is now reporting that Marco Silva is ready to let the former England under-21 international - who earns £23,000-a-week, according to Spotrac - leave on a free, with two Championship sides interested in offering him a new challenge.

The Sun suggests that both Wigan and newbies Luton are keen on Galloway. The Latics had another Everton left-back on loan this past season, with Antonee Robinson impressing during his time away from Merseyside.

With Lucas Digne proving to be a fantastic signing and the Liverpool Echo reporting that Leighton Baines is set to sign a new one-year deal, it does appear to make sense for all parties to let Galloway go at this stage of his career.
