Everton star confirms summer exit from Goodison Park

Everton star Tim Howard has admitted that he will be leaving the club to join MLS outfits Colorado Rapids this summer, Express reports.

The 37-year-old goalkeeper was a regular feature for his side over the past few campaigns, but recently lost his role to Joel Robles back in January.

He was linked with a move back to the United States during the winter window, with New York Red Bulls also another possible destination.

However, Howard has now confirmed that he will be leaving the Toffees to join Colorado Rapids when the season comes to an end, but insist that he will remain an Evertonian for life.

“I will remain an Evertonian for life. This will always be my team, my Club,” he said.

“I sacrificed so much to play the amount of games I have over a 10-year period, so I will continue to support this Club that I love.

“And because this is home, of course I will miss it, but I’m excited about my move to Colorado Rapids and continuing my career with them.”

Manager Roberto Martinez also praised the keeper for his services as the USA international continued to helped Robles improve before eventually earning himself a spot in the starting 11.

He joined from Manchester United on a permanent deal back in 2007 following a successful loan spell, making a total of 415 appearances for the club while even managing to register one goal.
