Everton midfielder James Rodriguez has confessed that his situation is 'complicated' and he does not know where his future lies following the arrival of Rafael Benitez at Goodison Park.

The Colombia playmaker was seen as a coup for the club when he was signed by Ancelotti, who he had worked with at Real Madrid, at the start of last season.

After playing a pivotal role in the Toffees hitting the top of the table shortly afterwards, Rodriguez contributed a solitary goal in Everton's final 14 league matches, playing in only five of those games as his side finished tenth in the Premier League.

Benitez, who succeeded Ancelotti following the Italian's shock return to Madrid at the end of the season, is rumoured to be ready to let Rodriguez leave in the current transfer window for the right price.

Rodriguez told fans on a live Twitch stream: 'I don't know what's going to happen. I don't know – I don't know where I'm going to play.

'You know that in football and in life you don't know anything, but all I know is that I've been training hard, preparing well, training for myself and that's it.

'It's complicated. [I will play] wherever I'm wanted. Someone has to be at a place they're wanted.'
