Marcus Bent has exclusively told Football FanCast that Jonjoe Kenny might want to leave Everton this summer following Seamus Coleman’s good form.
The right-back made seven appearances in the EFL Cup and Premier League prior to his loan move to Celtic in January, where he’s flourished and been a regular in the side.
Kenny spent last season on loan in the Bundesliga with Schalke, but with captain Coleman and Mason Holgate sharing the burden at right-back, the Everton Academy graduate has struggled for opportunities under Carlo Ancelotti, and perhaps his 15-year association with them could be coming to an end.
Since arriving at Parkhead, Kenny has played every minute of Celtic’s nine Scottish Premiership fixtures, and having had the feel for regular first-team football, Bent believes that he might consider a permanent switch away from Goodison Park this summer.
“Well he’s done well at Celtic on all accounts, but the problem is Coleman is doing so well at the minute,” the ex-Toffees frontman told Football FanCast.
“But Coleman is getting on a little bit, so whether he can sustain it, who knows? He’s 24, Jonjoe, and he’s had some playing time, but how long will he wait? He probably wants to be playing some first-team football.
“How long are they going to keep Coleman on, and are they going to give Jonjoe a chance?”
