Many Everton fans have been left slamming Mason Holgate as some transfer news emerged on his future this week.
As per The Liverpool Echo, both Brighton and Hove Albion and Norwich City made tentative enquiries about the possibility of signing the central defender in the summer transfer window, but it was made clear that he wanted to stay and regain a place in the starting eleven.
Should Everton start Holgate in midfield?
However, he has only managed to play in a mere four games in total over all competitions so far this season, with only two of those coming in the Premier League (Transfermarkt).
Holgate has recently said himself that his displays last season were not up to scratch (The Liverpool Echo), and with the January window coming up, a lot of Toffees supporters feel as if his time is now up at Goodison Park.
Everton fans on Holgate transfer news
These Blues slammed Holgate as the transfer news was shared on Twitter, with one EFC fan even going as far as to claim that he is a ‘liability’, averaging just a 66 per cent pass accuracy in the top flight this term:
“He didn’t kick on last season when I hoped he would do after the end to the season before when he played very well. I think the time is right for him to move on. He’s 25 and can’t see him improving significantly enough to improve our squad.”
“He was a liability last season… blew his chance. Not good enough.”
“Not. Good. Enough”
“He could help Norwich get relegated”
“No chance…if Keane and Godfrey are Sunday league then Holgate is schools league, sorry he just ain’t good enough either.”
“No way lad he’s absolutely garbage proved year in year out.”
