Magaye Gueye leaves Everton

Everton have parted company with French winger Magaye Gueye by mutual consent, bringing an end to four disappointing years with the club.

Gueye was a 1m signing from Strasbourg by David Moyes in 2010 but after a promising start to life at Goodison Park, the 23 year-old made just 24 appearances for the Blues, most of them as a substitute and, lately, in cup competition.

He spent much of Moyes's last season on loan in France with Brest and played just nine minutes under Roberto Martinez in 2013-14, a goalscoring cameo in the FA Cup Fourth Round against Stevenage.

Gueye's contract had another year to run but it was agreed by both parties that it would better to allow the player a chance to find first-team football elsewhere. The decision saves Everton the 800,000 it would have cost the club in wages had the player wound down the remainder of his deal.

"The club would like to thank Magaye for his contribution over the last four years and wish him every success for the future," Everton announced via a statement on the official site.
