Aaron Lennon has been gracing the right-wing for over a decade in the Premier League, playing for Leeds, Tottenham Hotspur and now Everton but rumours are circulating about the former England international’s future. What Are The Odds looks at where the 30-year old could be playing by the end of the transfer window.
Reports in the last day or two are suggesting that Aaron Lennon could be heading for the exit at Goodison Park, with the player being pushed down the pecking order after a series of new arrivals already in this window. According to the Mirror it’s Watford who are leading the chase, with new Hornets boss Marco Silva looking to inject pace into the London-club. Sky Bet bookmaker further backs up the transfer link with odds of 11/4 (3.75) on-offer.
Lennon is in the final year of his current contract with Everton so that has likely enhanced talk of a departure this summer, especially with so many clubs needing to strengthen their quality in the right-wing position. With the transfer link in such an early stage it’s understandable that the Toffees are still favourites to retain Lennon with odds of 5/6 (1.83) - a lot will depend on game-time assurances when the Premier League resumes.
Other clubs in the market, albeit much further back, are logical choices that would give Aaron Lennon the platform to showcase his skills, but whether there is actual interest is another matter.
Newcastle United head up the outsider bets with odds of 8/1 (9.00), while West Bromwich Albion are just behind at 10/1 (11.0) - both clubs are still seeking additions with both likely eyeing more experience to boost their respective ambitions this season.
If Lennon were to somehow fancy a venture down in the Championship then Sunderland are backed at 11/1 (12.0) and Leeds United (the club where it all started for the winger and his hometown) at 20/1 (21.0).
