Klaassen left Ajax for the Premier League in the summer with Everton paying £24 million to sign the midfielder. However, Klaassen struggled in his early performances and after Ronald Koeman was replaced by Sam Allardyce, he has found himself frozen out.

Quoted by the Telegraph, Allardyce admitted that Klaassen’s move hasn’t worked out and he is not in his plans for the rest of the season.

He said, “At this moment in time and from what we see, it hasn’t worked. The lad is prepared to fight for his place, but before I came and since I’ve been here, in all the other players, there seems to be more coming from them than there is from Davy.

“That’s a great shame. One, for the club and two, for the player. As a person and lad he’s a terrific young man, but at the moment, there’s not a place in the side for him.

“It’s like everyone who’s in this big squad, if you get a chance, you need to be ready. You’ll get one chance, you won’t get any more.”
