Godfrey has just 12 months left on his Goodison Park deal.

But, after turning down the new terms to extend his contract beyond next summer, the £10million-rated star is in line to leave without a transfer fee.

The versatile ex-Norwich defender will be able to speak to foreign clubs from January unless Everton improve their offer.

The interest from Serie A giants Milan and Bundesliga big-hitters Dortmund in Godfrey is long-standing.

But Everton boss Sean Dyche was reluctant to let Godfrey leave as they fought relegation last season.

Godfrey impressed for Dyche’s men in the second half of the season and became a regular starter, making 13 of his 16 appearances.
