Tim Howard will leave Everton this summer and move to Major League Soccer's Colorado Rapids.

The USA international goalkeeper has lost his place in the Everton team this season to Joel Robles due to indifferent form.

And with his future at Goodison Park looking bleak, the 37-year-old veteran's move to MLS has been confirmed:


Ireland striker Kevin Doyle will be among his Colorado team-mates.

Howard has won over 100 USA caps and has also made over 300 appearances for Everton since signing for Manchester United in 2006 - initially on loan.
