Out-of-favour Everton defender Jonjoe Kenny needs to leave the club and move somewhere where he will play week in, week out.
That is the view of former Aston Villa and England striker Gabriel Agbonlahor, speaking exclusively to Football Insider as Burnley eye up a move for the 23-year-old.
This site revealed earlier this month the Lancashire outfit are plotting a January deal for the full-back after their recent takeover.
Manager Carlo Ancelotti is yet to make a decision on Kenny’s future who has seen his game time severely limited this term.
The Liverpool-born star has started just one Premier League game this season despite first-choice right-back Seamus Coleman missing a significant part of the campaign with injury.
Instead of turning to Kenny in the absence of his captain, Ancelotti has instead utilised centre-back Mason Holgate as a makeshift right-back.
Even winger Alex Iwobi has been used on the right-hand side of a back five ahead of the 16-times England Under-21 international.
Asked by Football Insider whether the time was right for Kenny to now leave Goodison Park permanently, Agbonlahor said: “Yes, 100 per cent.
“If Coleman is out injured and you’re not starting and he’s playing Holgate out of position, you know you’re time is up.
“He needs to definitely look to move on and go somewhere where he will play week in, week out every game, for sure.”
Kenny spent last season on loan with Bundesliga side Schalke 04 where he played 34 times across all competitions and won rookie of the month for August.
Over half of his 47 Everton appearances came in the 2016/17 season under caretaker boss David Unsworth and then Sam Allardyce.
