Isaac Price has now said goodbye to Everton after his decision to leave the club this summer.

The 19-year-old’s contract with the Blues expires at the end of June and the teenager has agreed to join Belgian outfit Standard Liege.

Taking to his Instagram account to say he will ‘never forget’ his time at the club, the Northern Ireland international ends a 12-year stay with Everton.

The teenager said: “I want to take this opportunity to give my thanks to everyone who has supported me throughout my time at Everton FC – my teammates, the staff and most importantly you the supporters.

It has been an honour to grow up at this club, the passion you give for this team and this city is something that will stay with me forever.

I will never forget the incredible memories and experiences I have had here. Thank you again for everything, Isaac.”

Everton will hope they do not later regret letting Price leave

It is a shame to see a player filled with such potential leave the club, especially given the fact that Everton will only receive £400,000 UEFA compensation, as reported in The Athletic.

Isaac Price made his debut for the Toffees in March 2022 in the 2-0 win against FA Cup opposition Boreham Wood at Goodison Park.

Indeed, the youngster then made his Premier League debut on the final day of the 2021/22 season as Everton fell to a 5-1 defeat at Arsenal.

Having been a part of Everton’s academy since he was seven years old, it is a shame to see Price leave the club under such ignominious circumstances.

There had been high hopes amongst the fan base that Price could be the next young star to make a real impression on the first team, however let’s just hope his departure doesn’t come back to haunt us.
