Demarai Gray joins Gerrard's Al Ettifaq on Deadline Day

For an undisclosed sum, Demarai Gray has left Everton for Steven Gerrard’s Al Ettifaq team in the Saudi Pro League.

Gray’s transfer includes a sell-on clause, as he has not played for Everton this season.

Gray will play for Al Ettifaq with former Premier League stars Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum, and Moussa Dembele, in addition to being coached by Gerrard.

The departure of the 27-year-old comes just days after he took aim at Everton manager Sean Dyche on Instagram, writing: “Everton fans have always been great with me. However, it’s so difficult to play for someone who doesn’t show you respect as a person.”

Gray “didn’t want to train” and “didn’t want to be here,” Dyche said in an interview with Everton’s website.

After joining from Bayer Leverkusen, the Jamaica international played just over two years with the Toffees. He scored 12 goals in 75 games in all competitions.

Everton said in a brief statement, without thanking their former attacker, “Everton have sold Demarai Gray to Al-Ettifaq on a permanent transfer for an undisclosed fee.”

“Gray moves on after the Blues decided to sell the 27-year-old forward to the Saudi club.” It concludes his two-year stay on Merseyside, having joined from Bayer Leverkusen in 2021.

“Gray appeared in 75 games for Everton and scored 12 goals.” “The Jamaican international began his career with Birmingham City before moving on to Leicester City in 2016.”
