Sylvain Distin and Andre Gomes have sent heartfelt tributes to Phil Jagielka after he called it time on his stay at Everton.

The Englishman is free to find a new club after not agreeing to an extension with the Toffees.

This puts an end of Jagielka’s 12-year stay at Goodison Park where he captained the side for half that time.

“Its been hard to confirm my situation for next season as that decision hadn’t been fully made by the club until now, unfortunately my journey at Everton has come to an end after 12 fantastic seasons, I have been lucky enough to play over 380 games and lucky enough to be club” He wrote on Twitter.

He added: “captain for 6 years. All I can say is thanks to all the players I’ve played along side, all the staff that have helped me in their own way, The Chairman and of course the AMAZING fans💙 wishing everyone associated with this special clubs the very best for the future! COYB (c) 6⃣💙”

Distin who formed a solid defensive partnership with Jagielka during his time at Everton was quick to send a warm farewell message for his captain.

“Captain oh my captain… what a pleasure it was to play alongside you 🙌🏾 we even had our @toppsmatchattax_ defensive duo cards 😎 you are one of the last player with the true @everton dna 🧬 and you ll be missed at the club my friend. All the best with your new challenge 🤞🏾” he wrote on Twitter.

Gomes who joined Everton only this season also followed suit in wishing Jagielka the very best for his future ventures.

However, it remains to be seen if Gomes will follow Jagielka through the exit door as speculations regarding his future grow rife.

His one-year loan tenure at Everton has concluded but the Toffee’s are believed to be keen on signing him permanently.
