Tranmere Rovers

Former Tranmere Rovers Loanee Released By Everton; should Nigel Adkins sign him?



Lewis Warrington, a former midfielder for Tranmere Rovers, was released by Premier League team Everton when his contract expired, the official Premier League website revealed.

The 21-year-old played for Plymouth Argyle in the Championship during the first half of the 2023–24 season before making an appearance for Everton in the Premier League towards the end of the campaign after returning to Goodison Park in January.

How did Warrington fair last season?

Warrington was only able to make four appearances for Plymouth Argyle throughout all competitions after moving to Home Park in July.

Warrington played a few games at Home Park as a defensive midfielder, winger, and central midfielder before Everton, predictably, called him back.

Before making his first team debut in a May encounter against Sheffield United, he initially joined the club’s U21 squad and played five times in the Premier League 2.

Could his Tranmere spell prove he deserves to stay in the EFL?

Warrington had a good 2022 season with Tranmere Rovers, contributing three goals in 17 appearances despite little playing time.

Warrington experienced EFL play for the first time during that loan period, and he made a good impression overall at Tranmere Rovers, setting the stage for another successful season with Fleetwood Town. But Warrington’s move into the Championship didn’t have the expected impact.

Despite this, Warrington’s time at Tranmere helped him prepare for a productive loan spell in the upcoming season, so a potential suitor may take that into consideration this summer when contemplating a move.

Where could his next move take him?

Warrington now has the chance to locate a new residence for the upcoming season as a free agent. Opportunities at teams like Blackpool, Wigan Athletic, or a return to either Tranmere or Fleetwood could be in the cards given that three of his four previous clubs are in the northwest.

But Warrington’s final tenure carried him all the way to Plymouth, where things didn’t turn out the way he had intended. This can have resulted from a variety of factors, such as opportunities lacking or homesickness.

The northwest is where Warrington played his best football in his career, so a League One or Two nearby team might present the 21-year-old with a great opportunity.
