Allardyce has told Klaassen to leave as he looks set to join Napoli

Everton manager Sam Allardyce has told Davy Klaassen that it is best if he leaves the club as the Dutchman looks set to join Napoli on loan according to the Daily Mirror.

The former Ajax captain has rarely been given a chance since signing for £26m in the summer and Allardyce has told him that it is best for him to leave to get games.

“Because he has never appeared on the subs bench it would be better benefit for him and the club if he moved on just on loan,” the Allardyce said.

“He is quite willing to sit and stay and fight for his place but at this moment he is better going out and playing some football. I think that would benefit him and give him the opportunity to play.”

“Because maybe next season he might be good enough,” he said when asked why only a loan deal for Klaassen

“You look how many players don’t make it in their first season from abroad. There are hundreds and hundreds of them. And at every club. Given a full pre-season and then you wait and see.”

Will Klaassen make it at Everton?
