It looks increasingly likely that troubled Everton winger Aaron Lennon may leave Goodison Park, with Watford his likely destination.
Lennon, now 30, has been in the news for wrong, and quite sad, reasons over the summer. The England international was taken into care under the Mental Health Act back in May after police were called to Lennon’s house for fears over his welfare and safety.
He was subsequently released and returned to Everton’s pre season, where he scored in Everton’s 3-0 success over Dutch side FC Twente. His display drew plenty of praise from teammates and fans alike.
However, Everton have been amongst the most active clubs in the transfer market and whilst Lennon is not exactly considered surplus to requirements, he may be released, either on loan or permanently, as first team football cannot be guaranteed. This has attracted Watford, who’s manager, Marco Silva, continues to look for depth to his team, and wants more attacking options – and feels that Lennon still has plenty to offer in the Premier League.
Such a move, you feel, could only benefit Lennon as he continues to recover from his ailments, and having broke through the ranks at Tottenham Hotspur, maybe a move back ‘home’ to North London may be exactly what’s needed for the lively winger. Whatever happens, we wish him well.
