News broke on Friday that Tom Cleverley had signed a five-year deal with Everton on a free transfer from Manchester United.
Everton Transfer Gossip
Having spent the season on loan with Aston Villa, where he bagged three goals in 31 appearances to help the club retain their top flight status.
Many believed he would stay put at Villa, after he said as much in an interview last month, but his decision to depart has angered the Holte End faithful.
But while some are incredulous, others see it as an opportunity to go and find somebody better.
However, Everton fans aren’t too happy with the developments, with many feeling that they could have found somebody better themselves.
It seems that Cleverley is still a divisive figure amongst English football fans.
Though it does seem like a silver lining for Manchester United supporters, who look to be glad to finally have him off of their books.
