The 28-year-old is poised to part ways with Everton this summer as his contract reaches its conclusion. A period of free agency awaits him, marking a phase where he has notably struggled to maintain his professional trajectory due to form and fitness challenges.

Dele was notably absent during Everton’s final home game at Goodison Park in the 2023-24 season, facing Sheffield United on May 11. This absence prompted former Everton scout Bryan King to question Dele’s commitment, urging him to revitalize his stagnating career. King emphasized to Goodison News that Dele’s first priority should be reigniting his passion for football if he wishes to salvage his potential. King criticized Dele’s failure to acknowledge the supporters, viewing it as a disappointing display of indifference.

Since his move from Tottenham in January 2022, Dele has made only 13 appearances for Everton. While expressing a desire to reignite his career, his future remains uncertain as he awaits potential offers from domestic and international teams.
