David Ornstein has provided a fresh update on the transfer situation of Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite. Ornstein acknowledges that Branthwaite’s outstanding performances this season have garnered attention from various clubs, including Manchester United and Liverpool. However, Everton is not willing to let him go, especially after he recently extended his contract at Goodison Park.
Everton fans can take comfort in the fact that the club is committed to retaining Branthwaite’s services, as long as they remain in the Premier League. This commitment is a result of the promising partnership Branthwaite has formed with James Tarkowski in the heart of Everton’s defense, making him one of the standout performers at the club this season.
Ornstein points out that Everton’s ability to keep Branthwaite hinges on their Premier League survival. Fortunately, the team’s recent run of form, with four wins in their last six games, is boosting their hopes of staying in the top flight. This positive trend is not only reassuring for the club but also for Branthwaite and the fans.
