Neville called time on his Toffees career on Tuesday, having spent eight seasons at Goodison Park since arriving from Manchester United, although the 36-year-old intends to continue playing providing there are offers on the table.
In a statement, he confirmed: “It’s been an honour to play for and captain Everton Football Club. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time on Merseyside and will leave with immense pride.
“I would like to thank the manager, chairman, all of the staff and the players at Everton for their continued support. I’d also like to pay a special thanks to the fans, who have been amazing over the past eight years and Everton will always have a place in my heart.
“I want to continue to play at the top level as long as I physically can, and will be weighing up my options before making a decision. I’ll now be doing everything I can to help Everton finish as high up the league table as possible.”
Neville will go down as one of David Moyes’ best signings, having arrived for £3.5 million in 2005 and going to make 303 appearances in a blue shirt.
