The former Southampton midfielder joined the Toffees from Manchester United in 2017 and became a regular fixture in their starting XI, but since the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti he has struggled for fitness and form.
Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti had nothing but positive things to say about the departing Schneiderlin, despite the relatively short period working together, but admitted the player had a desire to return to France.
“I can talk about the period he spent with me and I think it was a good period,” Ancelotti said.
“He had injuries but in the time he played, he played well. Everyone in the club is happy for what he did as a professional here and everyone wants to wish him the best.
“He had the desire to go back to France and we let him, he had the possibility to go there, so we wish him all the best for the future.”
