Everton have made Iliman Ndiaye their second new signing of the summer after completing a deal with Marseille for the Senegal international.

He follows Tim Iroegbunam through the door by signing a five-year contract with the Blues which ties him to the Club until 2029.

The fee is officially undisclosed but is widely reported to be in the region of £15.6m (~€17m) plus add-ons which represents a break-even sale for the French club who bought Ndiaye off Sheffield United a year ago.

Ndiaye had been a target of the Blues' Director of Football, Kevin Thelwell at the time but he did not have the funds to compete with Marseille at a time when the only deals Everton could do were with minimal cash up front.

Article continues below video content

That remains the case this summer but with Marseille content to accept staggered payments, the first of which is reportedly not due until next month when the 2024-25 financial year begins, it enabled Thelwell to finally get his man.

Ndiaye was a star performer for the Blades during their promotion-securing season in 2022-23 when he scored 15 goals and weighed in with 12 assists across 52 appearances in all competitions.

He played 46 times for Marseille last season but only scored four times, in indication of how difficult he found the transition to Ligue 1 and of a move that didn't pan out the way he had hoped.

There were other clubs believed to be interested in signing Ndiaye this summer but the player had indicated that Everton were his preferred destination.

At 24, the forward is at an attractive age and promises to bring much-needed invention and guile to Everton's forward line.

Done deal and reported on the OS now.

Yes, Neil, he made it to the halfway line but unfortunately he never made it back!

For those who like good diction, Ndiaye is pronounced as N-dia-ye.

Very uninspiring scoring record but, on the plus side, he can't possibly be worse than Chermiti.

Hopefully Dyche can get a tune out of him.

It's a positive indication of better times ahead that we are now able to sign players before the start of pre-season training.

Perhaps we might win a game in August.

Mal van Schaick

If he resurrects his previous form, he will be a good asset for us when he settles in and finds his role and form.

He plays on a position that we have used Doucouré in, and will be more natural than Doucouré supporting the striker. For me, a good signing.

Steve Brown
6 Posted 03/07/2024 at 12:38:17
Good luck, Iliam, and welcome to Goodison. He presented himself as bright, personable and genuinely excited to join the club.

Sean doesn't play a second striker, so interested to see where he plays. He may step into the role Doucouré had last season with the aim of retaining possession better when we break. He could also be an alternative to Harrison on the right.

Brian Williams
7 Posted 03/07/2024 at 12:42:51
I hope he's not an alternative to Harrison coz he 'aint a winger.

If anything, he's the Number 10 we've been craving for ages.

Lee Courtliff
8 Posted 03/07/2024 at 13:04:42
He may very well not be good enough for the Premier League, but this is exactly what we should be signing. Young players with potential who can be moved on relatively easily if things don't pan out as hoped.

I don't know too much about this lad, but I do know we were desperately in need of some flair and invention last season. Maybe he'll take Doucoure's place in the No 10 position?

Richard Duff
9 Posted 03/07/2024 at 13:05:02
Have never seen him play but his highlights reel looks similar to Demarai Gray.

Slightly higher than average pace, average shooting ability, average passing. He does certainly seem to have great balance and quick feet so good in tight/tricky situations.

Never seen him play but happy hes with us and looking forward to watching him.

Shaun McGough
10 Posted 03/07/2024 at 13:05:12
Welcome and good luck. It should spell the end of Maupay,

I hope Thelwell now pours all efforts into Calvert-Lewin's contract.

Come on, Iliman!

Neil Lawson
11 Posted 03/07/2024 at 13:06:43
Amongst other benefits, he brings guile. Something we have been sadly lacking.

So a central 4 maybe of Garner, Onana, Gana and Guile!

Joe McMahon
12 Posted 03/07/2024 at 13:20:40
Ian @3, that's a harsh conclusion.

Chermiti hasn't exactly had many minutes game time, has he?

Brian Williams
13 Posted 03/07/2024 at 13:26:48
Dave #2.

It's actually pronounced … Enjai. 😛

Barry Rathbone
14 Posted 03/07/2024 at 13:33:56
Can't believe we're signing people.

Reports of our death may have been greatly exaggerated.

Good luck, lad.

Brian Williams
15 Posted 03/07/2024 at 13:39:28
Well that's what he told me. ;-)
Dave Abrahams
16 Posted 03/07/2024 at 13:43:23
Brian (13),

It's not, maybe in the one-eyed bleedin' city but not over here mate. How are you? Good and well I hope.

Steve Brown
17 Posted 03/07/2024 at 13:55:30
"I hope he's not an alternative to Harrison coz he 'aint a winger."

In the last 50 games, he has played as an attacking midfielder 10 times and he has played wide 9 times.

He has played the majority of those games as a central forward 26 times. Dyche will not play him there.

Brian Williams
18 Posted 03/07/2024 at 13:56:08
So far so good mate. I'll be at BMD don't you worry!
Denis Richardson
19 Posted 03/07/2024 at 13:57:16
Welcome aboard. Much needed attacking reinforcements.

He's cost at lot less than Tosun, Walcott or Bolasie so at least we're being more sensible on the cash front.

Good luck to him – he'll have a decent pre-season as well.

Justin Doone
20 Posted 03/07/2024 at 13:57:49
Welcome and good luck!

He's maybe not the out-and-out goalscorer we need and I question if we could have spent the money more wisely but, if he fits in well and contributes to a successful season, then great.

From the little I have seen of Chermiti, I rate him. Certainly appears to understand the game, makes better decisions, and is a more natural striker than Beto.

Hugh Jenkins
21 Posted 03/07/2024 at 14:31:28
It's good that we are getting recruits in early in the window so that they can settle in during pre-season and hopefully we "can hit the ground running" from the start of the season and not 6 or 7 weeks in.

With this change in recruitment tactics, hopefully we also get a change in luck and don't get our new recrutis being seriously injured in pre-season – and never really recovering well enough to play for us again.

Ian Bennett
22 Posted 03/07/2024 at 14:40:01
Ian 3 - he had 24 goal involvements prior to moving to Marseille from 46 matches.

That proves he's durable – it's a very tough league, and he's getting a goal or assist every other game in the Doucoure role – that's very decent.

He played wide left and central at Sheffield United, but got pushed out wide right at Marseille and lost form.

We are paying what we couldn't afford last season. And we are paying it each season on the drip. This is a good deal.

The Chermiti comment is just plain stupid. He's a kid with some promise, and judging his Sheffield United game has the attributes to be a good player in time - pace, skill, size and work rate.

Jonathan Oppenheimer
23 Posted 03/07/2024 at 14:40:26
Very pleased with this signing, and welcome to the club, Iliman!

Given what I've heard and seen on YouTube, he's exactly what we need, and Richard (9), he seems a much more adept dribbler than Demarai Gray, more able to beat a defender with his first touch, far more creative and with more end product, even if he had a down year at Marseille.

Obviously highlights can be deceiving, but I recall a post on here a few days ago saying a Sheffield supporter recalled him as the most exciting player he'd seen in a long time, or something to that effect.

Our squad has been crying out for pace, creativity and guile since we lost James and Gylfi, and at his age and this price, Ndiaye seems the best we can hope for right now. Still could use a Philomene type out wide, and some support at left back, but it might be that Seamus and Young are our full-back cover, assuming Mykolenko is healthy and Patterson gets his shot.

Still many unknowns to come, especially whether we hold on to Calvert-Lewin, Onana and Branthwaite, but nice to be hopeful this time of year.

Chris Keher
24 Posted 03/07/2024 at 14:42:27
I have some Sheffield Utd mates and they loved this fella. He's not an out-and-out striker he's more creative than that.

I've had a look on a Sheffield Utd fan site and (whilst a few are pissed off with him for leaving them on the eve of the new season last year) the overiding tone is that he is one of the best players they've had in recent memory. Many credit him with getting them promoted in the first place.

When Doucoure got injured last season around Christmas, our form dropped off a cliff so hopefully this further strengthens that area.

Exactly the type of player we should be looking to get - good age, lots of potential, in an area that needs more players and we can afford him.

For me, an excellent signing.

Paul Kossoff
25 Posted 03/07/2024 at 14:48:39
And the next one right in here please. Sit next to our other two strikers, £45 million + to replace our other striker who didn't, doesn't, don't score many goals.

"But I don't score many either."

That's okay son, you will fit right in, they don't score many, any, at all either. NEXT!!!

Jim Bennings
26 Posted 03/07/2024 at 14:50:17
If he comes in and offers a varied skillset to the other midfielders we have, then straightaway I'm saying it's a good move.

We've had nowhere near enough goals from midfield, let's be honest. Apart from Doucoure early season, the middle of the park and wide areas have been non-existent in terms of goals or even many creations.

I'm not sitting here saying Ndiaye is going to get 10 goals but I don't really base his Marseilles record on what happens at Everton; sometimes a change of club changes a player's fortune.

We've signed rather good goal-scorers over the years and they've come here and struggled and then left and started scoring again, and likewise, we have had players look immense here then struggling after leaving Everton.

It's a clean slate for Ndiaye, if he scores 7 goals then there's 7 goals that weren't there last season.

Ben King
27 Posted 03/07/2024 at 15:02:07
I reckon he'll do really well for us. An exciting signing.

Hopefully more to come.

Steve Shave
28 Posted 03/07/2024 at 15:12:46
I'm delighted with this signing.

I see there is the usual negative folk writing him off before he's even kicked a ball.

Sam Hoare
29 Posted 03/07/2024 at 15:15:08
In his last season at Sheffield United, he scored 14 goals and had 10 assists. That's more than Gibbs-White managed the previous season.

His close control, dribbling and composure are high quality. And he has good vision as well. Plus he's a very hard worker.

He has the potential to be the best ‘10' we've had in a while but could also be a Pienaar-esque winger if needed.

I'd say a steal at £15M. I'm very happy with this signing and hope he hits the ground running. He definitely has the potential to link our midfield and attack in a way Doucoure never quite could.

Christopher Timmins
30 Posted 03/07/2024 at 15:15:53
Folks, where exactly did the guy play for Sheffield United?

Steve Brown
31 Posted 03/07/2024 at 15:27:56

My mate, who is a Sheffield Utd supporter, said he played as a striker or an advanced midfielder. I think Dyche will play him in the latter position.

Ed Fitzgerald
32 Posted 03/07/2024 at 15:32:51
Ian @3,

That comment about Chermiti isn't just harsh – it's nonsensical.

When the lad has had any minutes, he has looked okay with some promise. Personally I'm hoping he gets more time this season as I would imagine Beto will be shipped out.

Kieran Kinsella
33 Posted 03/07/2024 at 15:37:45
He's had an interesting journey. With Marseille as a kid, then a few years in Senegal then he played for Boreham Wood.

Not a bad thing that he has tasted football in the lower realms as such players tend to appreciate the opportunities they have when they "hit the big time."

Kevin Molloy
34 Posted 03/07/2024 at 15:40:33
This deal will help when we come to ask Beto's club for our money back. When they say 'Nobody gets their money back after flopping,' we'll be able to say 'Au contraire, we've just refunded Marseille their full fee. Now give us our £25million'.


Tom Bowers
35 Posted 03/07/2024 at 15:50:19
An average player at a very average price?

Who knows how he, along with the others we have, manage to make an impact next season.

I have ceased to have high expectancy of any new blood after all the abject failures we have had in the past so here's hoping for a positive change.

Alan J Thompson
36 Posted 03/07/2024 at 15:52:44
Reading the above, I'm not sure what his position is, the seventh midfielder or the fifth striker as it doesn't seem too long ago that we barely had one striker.

And have we run out of blue shirts?

Mike Gaynes
37 Posted 03/07/2024 at 15:55:43
Per Transfermarkt, Ndiaye's sensational 2022-23 season at Sheffield United (he was Blades' Player of the Season) was spent entirely as second striker, centre-forward, or attacking midfielder.

However, roughly half Ndiaye's starts last season in France were on the wing, a position he never played before.

It certainly seems possible that was a big reason for his drop-off in productivity.

Jack Convery
38 Posted 03/07/2024 at 16:08:42
According to Transfermarkt :

No of Career Games - 134
Goals - 26
Assists - 19

Of the above games, 76 were played in the Championship, with 21 goals and 13 assists.

Anyway he's one of us now. Let's get behind him. COYBs.

Ian Jones
39 Posted 03/07/2024 at 16:12:32
Championship at best.

Thought I would say it before anyone else does. :)

Great to get some players in early in the transfer window.

Dale Self
40 Posted 03/07/2024 at 16:14:19
This is the Cornet position I think. Good to see us getting young talent that will definitely contribute at the squad level and may break through to something special.
Dave Abrahams
41 Posted 03/07/2024 at 16:16:02
Brian (18),

Keep it up, Brian.

Ian Wilkins
42 Posted 03/07/2024 at 16:20:31
If Calvert-Lewin stays (sadly running down his contract), then Ndiaye can be the man sat behind and off him. We've needed this. Doucoure was flat on his return from injury and may sit deeper next season.

In this scenario, Chermiti maybe goes out on loan and gets the game time needed. Ideally that should have happened last season. Unless Beto departs of course.

We still need a pacy winger who can beat a man and add a few goals. I had hoped that would be Minteh but it appears Calvert-Lewin's wage demands scuppered that one.

There will be more twists and turns yet. I can't see anybody coughing up the £70M for Branthwaite (I would be delighted to see him stay) and I'm not sure anybody is knocking our door down to give us £50M for Onana, though he did have a decent Euro showing.

Lots of transfer window left; it is good to see us trying to get some business done early.

Jim Jennings
43 Posted 03/07/2024 at 16:35:42
Mike (37), I’ve often wondered how many scouts Transfermarkt have at each English second tier and French first division game observing which position each player played.
Tommy Carter
44 Posted 03/07/2024 at 16:39:20
This has all the hallmarks of good business. He's at an age where he can get better. Has good experience and success at Championship level and will have benefited from his time at Olympique Marseilles where he has acquired valuable experience albeit he did not score as frequently as you might like. But had he done so, he certainly wouldn't be signing for Everton this summer for this kind of fee.

The important thing is that he has room and time to get better and fulfil his potential. Another positive is that he has joined early in the transfer window giving the management and coaching staff time to get him doing the things they want him to do.

I see no negatives in this signing at all and I hope it works out to be a success.

Neil Halliwell
45 Posted 03/07/2024 at 16:42:08
For fuck's sake, give Chermiti a break.

We need to encourage him.

Alan McGuffog
46 Posted 03/07/2024 at 16:48:43
Nah, Neil... give him a break. On ToffeeWeb? Behave! He's shite, and he'll always be shite.

Why aren't we going for Yamal and Williams! Oh... I think I know the reason.

Rob Dolby
47 Posted 03/07/2024 at 16:51:56
No idea where Dyche will play this lad. Up his work rate and challenge Doucoure or Harrison?

I would be happy with McAtee on loan or O'Hare on a free next up.

We have to bring another full-back in and centre-midfielder if Onana leaves.

James Newcombe
48 Posted 03/07/2024 at 16:53:19
If we'd spent the Moshiri millions picking up players who have excelled in the Championship like this fellow, rather than the likes of Bolasie, Gbamin, Tosun, Sandro, Keane… and so many bloody others, we'd have been absolutely flying.

Hopefully there's more to come in as I can't take another season with these full-backs!

Brian Wilkinson
49 Posted 03/07/2024 at 16:58:23
Should be additional support behind Calvert-Lewin and same role as Doucoure so a nice addition to the squad.

Whether Calvert-Lewin signs a new contract or not, I reckon we will get around £30 million max for him, we could lose him for nothing next year, but I reckon his goals will earn us additional placing up the league, so will not be that much of a hit, if he runs his contract out.

It gives us another season to get this new guy up to speed and an extra season for Chermiti to step up, so if we get another season out of Dom, be worth the small hit of losing him on a free.

Stale Haverstadlokken
50 Posted 03/07/2024 at 16:59:53
He is a No 10. A more attacking player than Doucoure. He knows the English game. Not a big physical player, but has other things in his locker.

For £15M this is a good transfer for Everton. It's up to him and the gaffer to see if he succeeds.

Ian Jones
51 Posted 03/07/2024 at 17:11:55
More to the point, where does Dele Alli play just in case he gets some form of contract?
Les Moorcroft
52 Posted 03/07/2024 at 17:13:15
You can please some of the people some of the time. But not all of the people all of the time.

Give this lad a chance, for fuck's sake.

Brendan Fox
53 Posted 03/07/2024 at 17:34:14
Welcome, Iliman.

Hopefully you are able to add a spark of creativity to midfield and up top which has been sorely lacking since Gylfi and James departed the scene.

Jamie Crowley
54 Posted 03/07/2024 at 17:42:42
This signing is excellent, and it's what we should be doing in spades for the next two years.

We simply can not spend big. Our financial situation must become robustly healthy under Friedkin. Buy potential. Buy young.

I'm now hoping we improve our books by selling Beto and Onana. Keep Calvert-Lewin and Branthwaite.

If that happens, this window is an A+, best since we brought in Barry, McCarthy and Lukaku.

Dale Self
55 Posted 03/07/2024 at 17:47:17
Too early to get entirely weird about it but the tendency of posters to say "they are shite" is disgusting. These are typically the same folks who will say "only expressing an opinion" when they or their posts are called shite.

This is TW. No one gets a pass. Vicious posters may have to deal with vicious responses this season. Unless, of course, some decide to apologize to Thelwell and Dyche for the unjustified abuse hurled at them.

Billy Shears
56 Posted 03/07/2024 at 17:48:33
Great news, a decent enough player and we're getting our business done early which will be good for bedding in the new signings too.

Well done for all concerned, more of the same please.


John Graham
57 Posted 03/07/2024 at 18:05:58
Ian @3,

Thank god you're not on the scouting team.

Chermiti looks a great prospect. Quick, skillfull and improving every game. Only young, but probably one of the best prospects we've had in a long time.

Brent Stephens
58 Posted 03/07/2024 at 18:17:58
Good man, Dale.
Jay Harris
59 Posted 03/07/2024 at 18:18:40
Dale, totally agree.

We should all be rallying around the guys keeping this club afloat in the absence of any direction from the very top.

Peter Mills
60 Posted 03/07/2024 at 18:23:26
My son-in-law follows the Blades home and away. He liked Gibbs-White, but loved this guy.

From what I've been told, he is a left-sided attacker who is creative, can score or make a goal, and enjoys a mazy run.

Definitely worth a punt at the price.

Billy Bradshaw
61 Posted 03/07/2024 at 18:39:13
Alan @ 36,

The new blue home kit has not been made public yet; sometime this month, the club reckon.

Liam Mogan
62 Posted 03/07/2024 at 18:49:06
It looks ugly.and cheap that shirt.

Did Thelwell bring it back from his hols in Marmaris?

Andy Crooks
63 Posted 03/07/2024 at 18:51:17
It's strange how even backache can, in a strange sort of way, be missed.

I wondered where Ian Edwards had been and hoped all was well. Then post #3 appears.

I still hope all is well, Ian, but will now have to take, once more, the default position of finding your posts to be attention-seeking, unsubstantiated, "look at me" nonsense.

Rob Halligan
64 Posted 03/07/2024 at 19:01:47
Andy, Ian Edwards has been so distraught at Carlo "The Dinosaur" Ancelotti winning his millionth champions league, and customary La Liga title, that he's been in hiding for a while.

Still, Ian Edwards knows best........... NOT!!

Bobby Mallon
65 Posted 03/07/2024 at 19:04:54
Rob @64,

I think yours is post of the day

David West
66 Posted 03/07/2024 at 19:39:47
Can't say I know too much about this lad but his stats from playing in the Championship aren't too bad, he's versatile and should offer more than we got from Danjuma last season, so it's a positive signing.

We are not going to be in for big name, big money signings but I'm down with that. I'd rather we got some to develop. Belgium are out so I'm expecting the Onana noise to ramp up now.

Thelwell's done good for incoming signings, can he get the best deal on outgoings?

It's vital we get every possible penny out of the outgoings, be that Onana, Calvert-Lewin or Branthwaite.

Phil Smith
67 Posted 03/07/2024 at 19:50:14
From what I've seen of him, he can't shoot to save his life.

Quite tricky player though. Could add something but probably not goals.

David West
68 Posted 03/07/2024 at 19:51:54
Dale 55. Spot on !!!

Some posters just want to go back to the days of spunking £30M on a Bolasie. They need their heads tested. Fuck big names!!!

Buy big talent, big effort, big desire! Buy players wanting to prove a point! Not more players wanting to make a pound!!

I'm excited by the targets we've been linked with; if we keep Branthwaite and add some pace, with the defence we have, we will have a side no one will take lightly.

Danny Baily
69 Posted 03/07/2024 at 19:57:01
Not a great finisher, lacks strength and his record is pretty poor. But he's cheap, pacy and there's more to come from him. Presumably we'll use him in the same role we tried to use Danjuma in. I'm sure we'll get a lot more out of this lad.

A real (non PSR motivated) transfer, nice and early in the summer and in a position we need strengthening. What's not to like?

Brian Williams
70 Posted 03/07/2024 at 20:09:37
What's not to like?

The fucking slagging you gave him at the start of your post maybe? 🤣

Dan Nulty
71 Posted 03/07/2024 at 20:13:07
Hopefully played in his proper position he can create and score goals for us where so many have failed!
Christy Ring
72 Posted 03/07/2024 at 20:34:45
He's a natural No 10 with pace, and has a good first touch, which Doucoure lacks.

He would be great beside Calvert-Lewin if we can get him to stay. A right full-back, winger with pace, and a midfielder next please.

Can we also offload Keane and Holgate, and bring in John Egan on a free, a centre-back with height, and pace, and a great backup for Tarkowski and Branthwaite.

Ian #3, Chermiti is young and I have more hope for him than Beto, and considering you have constantly berated Gueye and didn't want him in the team, he had a pretty good season in the team last season,

James Flynn
73 Posted 03/07/2024 at 20:43:16
I wouldn't attach much importance to Illiman's goal count last season, wherever he played on the pitch.

Their target-man was Aubameyang, of all players. He still banging them in at 35.

He scored 16 (or 17) times in the league. Our new player was second highest scorer in the league, tied with 6 others at 3 goals.

Ndiaye needs to be fit and ready to go, so Dyche can slot him in behind Calvert-Lewin. We really need Doucoure out of there.

Robert Tressell
74 Posted 03/07/2024 at 21:14:36
Very pleasing signing.

Should enjoy playing in the Doucoure position in a 4-4-1-1 – and will exploit the space which Calvert-Lewin creates. He has much more to his attacking game than Doucoure. Whether he is better than a player like Demarai Gray remains to be seen. But he's good value and the sort of player we need.

Jamie Crowley
75 Posted 03/07/2024 at 21:18:12

The injury thing scares me. We've bought our fair share of players made of glass recently.

Also, if the guy were that good, why wouldn't his manager start him / play him in more than 19 league games? That really concerns me.

It appears he can finish with the stats he has. And Lord knows we desperately need that! But if he can finish well enough, why isn't he chosen to play more?

Doesn't seem to make sense to me and just immediately revs up the sirens of caution in my head.

Someone who's happy to pick up the ball up in tight areas and run at defenders, something we've lacked for years.

I'm all for it, can see him becoming a fan favorite like Pienaar. Agent Gana strikes again.

Good luck to the lad. Seems some have already passed judgement and sentenced him.

What's the point of getting behind a young player and, ya know, being an actual fan and rooting for the kid to succeed when you can just crucify the poor fucker out of the gates?

Fits in with the "life is miserable, nothing good happens or pans out, and we'll all die" approach and mentality.

What a wonderful outlook on, and way to live, life!

Cheers ya cheery fuck! 😂

Almost all transfers are a gamble, wait-and-see jobs nowadays, but we're doing it right-ish, getting them in as early as we can and let them have a decent pre-season.

Hopefully these days are behind us, but there's always the worry that, with this Club in our circumstances, we will sell a hard-to-replace somebody at 10 to midnight – with no replacement on the books.

Peter #60, our coaches at Finch Farm will soon knock that classy shit out of him!

Liam #62, agree on the shirt, when I saw it on Omari Benjamin I thought it must be an U-21s kit but now it's appeared on Ndiaye.

A training kit perhaps?

Can we get a group together to egg his car on the first day of training?

I like the ‘look' of this guy, he seems well grounded while also being quietly confident of his ability. I can see him gradually replacing Doucoure over the course of the season.

Regarding Calvert-Lewin, I don't think he would risk running down his contract. Either way, I can see Everton benefiting:

Scenario 1: We sell him and that give us some money to gamble on a new player.

Scenario 2: He negotiates a bit more and finally signs on a long contract- this is the perfect scenario for us.

Scenario 3: He is not sold nor does he sign a contract. This obviously puts greater pressure on him to perform, and if he scores 15+ goals, that means we would be comfortably in the top half of the table, which is worth losing him on a free.

Ooooo how many negative comments did this thread begin with. The lad aint even on the dance floor yet.

Be nice to him. Be patient with him. He is one of us now.
Good luck young man.

Is that the new away kit or a training training kit? Sorry for fussing, but it's a pale shade of yellow and not amber!

I was arguing with my brother last night who insisted it was white, so I told him he was colour blind!

Good luck to him. He spoke well in his interview. Just go and do it on the pitch lad. If you perform, this support will be right behind you.

If he plays for Everton, he gets my support when he's on the pitch just like any player.

I don't know how much many have seen of him. I haven'y, but he's ours now, so lets get behind him and judge him as an Everton player.

Saw some YouTube clips from him, seems a good dribbler.

Reminds me of Bernard for his small size, hope hes much better.
