Everton forward David Henen has dropped a major hint that he will be leaving the club at the end of the season and supporters are gutted to see him leave.

The 22-year-old’s contract is due to expire in June and he took to his personal Twitter account on Sunday to suggest that he has played his final game for the Toffees’ Under-23s side.

“It was three great years for this wonderful club especially last season when we won the league. Thank you for your support during these years,” he said.

Henen has been a regular in the Under-23s side over the last few seasons and was in great form in Premier League 2 this term by netting five goals and supplying seven assists in 15 games.

His message of thanks is a clear sign that he will be leaving Goodison Park for good, even though the Liverpool Echo reported in February that the club were planning to open talks with him over extending his deal.

It now seems that either those talks never took place or Henen took the decision to leave after never making a senior appearance on Merseyside.

Everton fans were clearly sad to see the Belgian leave after three years, with several saying that they are “gutted”.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Henen joined Everton in 2015 after spells at Anderlecht and Olympiakos.

He was sent out on loan to Fleetwood in 2015/16, and played just 13 times, scoring once.
