Departure: Francis Okoronkwo joins Everton

Sunderland AFC can confirm Francis Okoronkwo has joined Everton Football Club.

Sporting Director Kristjaan Speakman said: “We are disappointed that Francis and his family took the decision to leave the football club earlier this summer, as we demonstrated a clear pathway for him to continue his development into the first-team environment. Throughout the summer, we have displayed our ability to retain and attract young talent and we have started to honour our long-term commitment that our homegrown players will be integral to our philosophy and future success. Although we are disappointed Francis will not be a part of that process, we wish him and his family well.”

All at SAFC wish Francis the very best of luck for the future.
