The 22-year-old, who moved to Goodison Park from Greek side Iraklis Thessaloniki for a fee in the region of £250,000, did not make a single first-team appearance this season.

He was loaned out to Championship side Blackpool in March but made just two starts before being recalled a month later and he leaves the Toffees having scored three goals in 24 games.

"I think it's been a disappointing season for himself but he's always had a terrific attitude and always a real desire to try to work hard for the team," manager Roberto Martinez told evertontv.

"He's probably in a position now where, at a very young age still, he needs a new challenge and a new environment to show what he can do.

"We wish him well and I'm sure every Evertonian will follow me with that."

Goalkeeper Mason Springthorpe, 19, has also left Everton after the expiry of his contract.
