Theo Walcott ended his 12-year affiliation with us when he joined Everton on Wednesday evening.
The England international left with the following message:
“I would like to say a big thank you to everyone involved at the club – manager, coaches, backroom staff, and all the many people at the club that have been part of my family for the past 12 years.
“I would also like to thank all my team mates I have had the pleasure of playing alongside, but most importantly the fans for their incredible support. I feel sad to leave but also excited for a new challenge. I wish everyone at the club every success for the future.”
