Lots of Everton fans have been flocking to tweets from Luke Garbutt as he confirmed that he will be leaving the Merseyside club after his contract expired.

The 27-year-old has said that he will continue to support the Toffees and thanked the fans as well as the academy for his time at Goodison Park.

Yes No

Indeed, Garbutt was at the Blues for 11 years but never really managed to hold a regular first-team place, having made just 12 senior appearances in all competitions and tallying one assist, according to Transfermarkt.

The left-back has perhaps been unlucky that he was at the club at the same time as Leighton Baines, who had developed into a fan favourite with the Blues having played 418 games across 13 consecutive seasons in all competitions so far, scoring 39 goals and providing 67 assists, as per Transfermarkt.

Nevertheless, these Everton supporters were appreciative of Garbutt’s time with them and showed their support on Twitter:

Today officially my contract at @Everton has now expired after been at the club for 11 years! The club has been a huge part of my life, and one I had huge pride to represent. There’s been many ups and a few downs which I couldn’t control. @Everton good luck for the future ?

Good luck to you young man,you never had the chance to prove yourself in the first team which I thought was wrong, hope you go on to great success.

Always felt you had more to offer us, let’s hope you have better luck elsewhere. All the best!

Good luck mate, shame it never really worked out as it looked like it might, you had one of Europe’s best left backs ahead of you most of your Everton career.

Someone will be getting a very talented player.
