French striker Maeva Clemaron bids farewell to Everton after two year stint with club

MAEVA CLEMARON has announced her departure from Everton after two years at the club.

The French strike sensation said goodbye to the club on social media.

The 28-year old reflected on her time with Willie Kirk's side and revealed she built some relationships that will last a life-time there.

She wrote: "My adventure with @evertonwomen is ended, I really want to say a massive thank you to all the club!

"Everton permit me to have the opportunity to come in England and it was one of my dreams after getting my diploma a few years ago to discover the UK, improve with the @barclaysfawsl and learn their culture of football and life!

"I want particulary to say thank you to my teammates for this last two years!

"I couldn't imagine a better welcome and integration in the team, despite my english level when I came!

"You were great and really patient with me so thank you again!

"I'm really thankful to you all and I'm happy to came first in the north of England to discover this part of the country!"

"I'm also glad to have meet some exceptional people and create some strong friendly relations!!

"To finish I want to say that I wish all the best to Everton, to theirs great fans, and obviously to my teammates!!Once a blue, always a blue!

"Thank you Toffees! Mav your first Frenchie."

But despite sharing the news of her exit, the midfielder offered no insight into where she was heading next.

She ended her farewell with: "The end of an experience is always the start of an other.

"Good summer and holiday to everyone."

The French national joined the Toffees from FC Fluery in 2019 and made 19 appearances during her time at Walton Hall Park.

Clemaron was part of the Toffees squad that lost 3-1 to Manchester City in the FA Cup final at Wembley last November.

Although she was part of the losing side, she revealed that playing at the infamous stadium was the "biggest moment in her career."

It even trumped reaching the World Cup quarter finals with France in 2019.

She said: "One of the best moments in my career. Especially as the fans have had to wait all this time."

Clemaron also helped Kirk's team to a fifth place finish in the Women's Super League last season.

But she'll miss out on the Scotsman's squad reshuffle as he plans to mount an assault for a coveted Champions League spot next term.

It's been claimed the Toffees boss has several transfers lined up and isn't scared to get the cheque-book out to land those on his wish-list.

He said: "Inevitably there probably will have to be fees.

"Contracts are as long as they have ever been in the women's game, so it is not as simple as letting players run down their contract and then signing them.

"Clubs work much more long-term now which means the players we are targeting are not necessarily free transfers.

"So we might have to pay a couple of fees."
