Toffees duo leaving

Everton have confirmed Thomas Gravesen and Stefan Wessels will leave the club this summer.

Midfielder Gravesen has struggled with injuries this season and has started only three games during his loan spell from Celtic.

Wessels, signed from Cologne last summer on a one-year deal, will also depart having made seven appearances as Tim Howard’s understudy.

Toffees chief David Moyes told the club’s website, evertonfc.com: “I would like to thank Stefan Wessels who, after today, will be leaving us. His level of professionalism has been a credit to him and he has been a great man to have around the club.

“Thomas Gravesen will also depart following the completion of his season-long loan. He deserves thanks for both his spells here and we wish him well for the future.”
