Harry Charsley released by Everton

Harry Charsley has been allowed to come off contract at Everton.

Blues U23 coach David Unsworth confirmed Charsley has been released following the expiration of his six-month contract at Goodison Park.

Charsley, 23, was set to leave after more than 10 years with the club in the summer but was handed a fresh deal after suffering a back fracture in a freak training ground injury towards the end of last term.

The Republic of Ireland youth international went on to make 14 appearances for Everton under-23s this season but is now looking for a new club.

"Harry has been released," Unsworth told the Liverpool Echo following the entertaining 3-3 draw with Arsenal under-23s at Southport on Monday evening.

"His deal was only until January and we were trying to help him out because we had a small squad this year.

"He got injured on our watch so we felt we had an obligation and we felt we had to do the right thing by offering him a six-month contract which we duly did and obviously got him fit over pre-season and got him a few games and profile in the shop window.

"And now that's a matter for Harry to carve himself a career hopefully at the highest level possible for him."
