Maarten Stekelenburg is packing his bags and heading for the exit at Goodison Park, with the Everton goalkeeper not expecting to be offered a new contract any time soon according to the Liverpool Echo.

The first signing of the Farhad Moshiri era could also be the first out of the door this summer.

The former Roma, Ajax and Fulham goalkeeper is set to become a free agent in July as it stands and you would have long odds on Stekelenburg ever featuring in Everton colours again.

After all, the veteran Dutchman has not made a single first-team appearance all season long, despite the less-than-impress displays of Jordan Pickford between the sticks.

And when you consider that Everton have been linked with a number of promising goalkeepers recently, including the rising star of Turkish football Ugurcan Cakir, it seems only a matter of time before a man who arrived on Merseyside under Ronald Koeman bids farewell.

The Echo reports that Stekelenberg is not expecting to be offered fresh terms, although it remains to be seen where the 37-year-old will end up next.

The 2010 World Cup finalist would hardly represent a long-term addition for any side, yet his vast experience means he will surely not be short of offers when the time comes to make the next step.
