The 36-year-old former England international said on Instagram: “It’s 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 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 club the very best for the future!!”

Everton signed Jagielka from Sheffield United for £4million in 2007 and he made over 300 Premier League appearances for the club.

However, the Toffees have decided not to renew his contract, which expires at the end of this month.

Jagielka won 40 caps for England after making his senior debut in a friendly against Trinidad and Tobago in 2008.
