Everton’s veteran defender Phil Neville will leave the club at the end of the current season according to BBC Sport.

The former England star joined the club from Manchester United in August 2005.

The 36 year old has gone on to become an integral part of David Moyes’ squad and helped the team to firmly establish themselves in the top half of the Premier League.

But Neville’s current deal is set to expire in June with player and club deciding it the right time to part company.

Neville confirmed that he was not planning on hanging up his boots though. Neville insisted he wanted to play at the highest level for as long as possible and was weighing up his options before deciding his next move.

Neville has made more than 500 top flight appearances over his long career. The player was effusive in his praise of Everton.

He thanked his manager David Moyes and the Chairman Bill Kenwright as well as the rest of the staff and his team mates in the Goodison Park dressing room. Neville also thanked the club’s fans.

Neville is set to travel with Stuart Pearce’s England under-21 team in a coaching capacity for the European Championships in Israel this summer.
