Our Everton fans here in the Transfer Tavern have enjoyed this transfer window so far but aren’t too sure over their latest signing.
The Toffees have signed the likes of Ademola Lookman and Morgan Schneiderlin this month with our resident Blues big fans of both players already.
Their latest acquisition though – Anton Donkor – doesn’t seem to have generated as much excitement.
That’s caused many to question why exactly the club have signed him on loan at all given that he’s not going to appear in the first team at Goodison Park.
Indeed, our landlord thinks it is a bit of a strange thing to do to bring a young player in on loan but it could in fact mark a new trend in transfer deals.
Indeed, Everton will lose little money whilst they can decide if they want the youngster whilst he has less pressure on himself to succeed knowing he can go back to parent club Wolfsburg if all goes wrong.
Other Everton fans, meanwhile, don’t even know who he is and so here is some of the best of the Twitter reactions to the deal:
