Everton defender Jonjoe Kenny says he is yet to hold talks about his future, despite claims he is likely to return to Goodison Park this summer.

The right-back has spent the season on loan at Bundesliga side Schalke after deciding to temporarily leave Merseyside in search of first-team football.

That is something he has found, becoming a regular under David Wagner and impressing many with several good performances.

They are keen to keep him at the club beyond the summer, but that seems unlikely to happen, with recent reports indicating he is 99% likely to return to Everton as Schalke cannot afford to keep him.

Whether his long-term future remains at his boyhood club is in doubt, though, with it as yet unknown whether they will sign Djibril Sidibé on a permanent transfer.

Should they do so, that would leave Kenny behind the Frenchman and Seamus Coleman in the running for Everton’s right-back slot.

In that scenario, another move would make sense, but he insists there have been no discussions and he’s simply focused on finishing the season first.

“I haven’t heard too much about it,” Ruhr 24 report him saying.

“For me, the most important thing at the moment is to adhere to the requirements for the coronavirus and be as safe as possible so that the team can perform at the weekend.

“We’ll see what happens at the end of the season, but at the moment it’s only about Schalke and the next eight games.

“I have not heard so much from Everton, as they’re in a difficult place at the minute with the Coronavirus situation in England.

“At the moment, I cannot make a clear statement about my future.”
