‘Real good chance’: Yerry Mina could now leave for free, Dyche has never played him – journalist

Why Chelsea FINALLY Turned A Corner.

Everton centre-back Yerry Mina looks set to leave the club on a free transfer at the end of the season with his current contract set to expire and no talk of an extension being offered.

The 28-year-old defender has only made four appearences for the Toffees so far this season, and has yet to feature under Sean Dyche with journalist Pete O’Rourke reporting that there is a ‘real good chance’ that the Colombian will depart this summer.

The Colombian international joined the Blues in a £27.2m deal from Barcelona in 2018 but his time at Goodison Park has been plagued by injuries which combined with his £120k-a-week salary means he’s a luxury Everton cannot afford.

Writing for GIVEMESPORT, O’Rourke stated: “I would say there’s a real good chance he will move on from Everton. He’s obviously out of contract in the summer and there have been no talks over a new deal.

“His time at Everton has been hit with injuries and he’s been injury prone, while he’s also missed a lot of games for Everton as well. I just think a parting of the ways will probably suit everybody involved here.”

Mina new contract would be a costly gamble for Everton, replacing him is preferable

Indeed, Yerry Mina is probably Everton’s best defender on paper, but he is far too unreliable with his limited availability becoming a source of frustration for the club’s fanbase.

Freeing up £120k per week in wages will allow Everton to explore options in the summer’s transfer window, when they will no doubt look for a more value for money option than the Colombian.

However, for the remaining seven Premier League fixtures, Mina could well do a job for the Blues during the brief time he has left on Merseyside.

The 28-year-old will be without a club in a matter of months and his injury record means he is a gamble for any potential suitor.

A good run of games would put him in the shop window, and Everton could benefit from his defensive expertise in their fight for Premier League survival.
