Everton to pay off Dele Alli’s contract to avoid big fee to Tottenham

    Football Insider recently revealed that Everton Football Club is set to pay off the remainder of Dele Alli’s contract in order to avoid paying a big fee to Tottenham Hotspur. The midfielder has struggled to make an impact since his loan move to Besiktas last summer, having made just 13 appearances for the Turkish club all season, according to Transfermarkt.

    Alli, a former Tottenham player, has not been part of Besiktas’ last four matchday squads, and was recently accused by head coach Senol Gunes of going AWOL after permitted time off. Gunes said last month (via The Mirror), “We gave Dele Alli permission for a small break, he hasn’t come back yet. It’s raining, that’s probably why he didn’t come. We’re trying to find out where he is.”

    Furthermore, Alli has been caught in the eye of another storm recently after being pictured surrounded by gas canisters with a balloon in his mouth, according to The Sun.

    The Football Insider report adds that Alli is set to fly back to England with the Everton medical staff eager to examine a muscle problem picked up by the Englishman. However, Besiktas is not likely to trigger a £6.9m permanent clause in their loan deal, with the Merseyside club now facing a fresh headache over the midfielder’s future.

    It is explained that clauses worth up to £40m exist in the deal that brought Alli to Goodison Park on a free transfer from Tottenham in January of last year. Football Insider asserts that in order to avoid those clauses being triggered, Sean Dyech’s men are expected to pay off the midfielder’s contract this summer.

    In conclusion, Everton is set to pay off Dele Alli’s contract to avoid paying a big fee to Tottenham, despite the clauses worth up to £40m existing in the deal that brought Alli to Goodison Park. The situation is expected to unfold in the coming months as the summer transfer window approaches.
