According to Walfoot.be, Everton youngster David Henen is eyeing a departure from Goodison Park in the January transfer window. As previously reported a fortnight ago, the young Belgian has struggled to make an impression and could be leaving on loan in the coming months.

The forward arrived at the club from Olympiakos in 2015 but has failed to impress in the club’s youth ranks since then. Last year saw him sent out on loan to Fleetwood Town, where he managed just one goal in 13 appearances.

Now, according to the Belgian site, he is eyeing a permanent move away to try and secure regular first team football. France is his most likely destination, with both Nice and Toulouse the keenest at this moment in time.

Indeed, according to the report, the former have already made contact with his agent about a possible move.

As far as the website is concerned the forward will have plenty of offers should he be available and is determined to find a club that can offer a good place to develop as well as guaranteed first team football.

Whether Everton are open to a sale, however, is not mentioned. It is easy to imagine they might be, with the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Calum Dyson impressing for the U23s this season.
