Sean Dyche praises Dele Alli’s new role, hinting to the Everton star’s likely next move.

Despite remaining out of action due to injury, Dele Alli is still making his presence felt at Finch Farm by helping his Everton team-mates get to grips with Sean Dyche’s playing style

 

Despite being sidelined with a groin injury, Dele Alli is playing an important role behind the scenes for Everton.
The former Tottenham midfielder is currently rehabilitating as he prepares to return to the Toffees after more than a year since his last competitive appearance for the club. Everton manager Sean Dyche has said that Alli has been offering useful feedback to help the coaches convey his style of play.
Alli was a key member of Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur team that came close to winning the Premier League and Champions League before his career abruptly ended. Alli is already impressing Dyche with his contributions despite his inability to play after talking out about his serious mental health difficulties.
Dyche told reporters ahead of Everton’s game against Crystal Palace: “I don’t think he would mind me sharing that there probably was a period when it was drifting for him.” He had a lot on his plate. Once that [his mental health battle] was revealed, he was able to focus on his game and was really active in terms of assimilating.
He can’t get out on the grass with us yet, but he’s gazing at it and taking in what I and the staff have to say. He is no longer dazed. Of course, what he was going through was really difficult. We are aware of this. But he is eager to contribute and express his thoughts.”
“By the way, I’m not bragging about calling him in for an hour every day and having these long, in-depth conversations,” he continued. We’re enjoying a coffee break in the canteen. ‘Hey, Dele, how’s it going?’ you’ll say. ‘What do you think?’ He’ll say stuff like, ‘I thought that, I thought this.’ It’s really a natural mix in which we like players to contribute their perspectives.”
Dyche also stated that there has been no progress with Spurs in renegotiating the contract that brought Dele to Merseyside. Everton must pay £10 million if he makes seven more appearances, which may be prohibitive to his recovery given Everton’s financial restraints. Dyche stated that “in-depth” negotiations will begin once Dele is close to becoming available.
“He is very assured being in my company, I believe,” the manager said of the player. That’s how I feel. Similarly, I am in his. Whatever transpired in his gloomy days, he still went through a lot. That completes you as a person. He appears to be quite confident in himself. He is more than willing to express his thoughts.
