Everton fans have reacted to a recent report linking youngsters Anthony Gordon, Morgan Feeney and Lewis Gibson with a move to Scottish Premiership side Celtic.
According to The Athletic, Neil Lennon’s Celtic side have regularly scouted all three players who have featured for the club’s U18 and U23 sides over the last couple of seasons.
19-year-old attacker Gordon joined Everton at the age of 11, and he has since progressed through the various youth ranks, before making his first team debut for the club against Apollon Limassol back in December 2017.
Defender Feeney is currently on loan with Tranmere Rovers, having developed through the club’s youth ranks, whilst is also enjoying a loan spell with Fleetwood Town.
Celtic boss Lennon is on the verge of winning another Scottish Premiership title, sitting top of the league ahead of second placed Rangers.
The Northern Irish coach is seemingly keen to continue the club’s idea of bringing young players in and helping them develop, and a summer move for all three Everton youngsters could now be on the cards.
Reacting to the news via Twitter account @EvertonNewsFeed, fans revealed their desire for the youth trio to remain at the club.

Loan deals maybe but permanent, no chance.

Let them go out on loan, would be a good move that. Wouldn’t sell either Gordon or Gibson though

A season loan at Celtic would be great for them if they played regularly. Gibson in particular seems to be ready to break through for some first team action. I think Gordon and feeney just need to bulk up a little. They look slightly lightweight against some opponents

Realistically will these ever be on the team sheet – No so send them out on loan to develop and grow. We need better fringe players

Hahahahaha not a chance

I’d send Feeney and Gibson on loan but Gordon no chance

Only way any of them are leaving is a loan deal
