Revealed: 69% of Everton fans would back Smalling swoop

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling looks set to move onto pastures new this summer, with The Daily Star reporting that the Red Devils are looking to cash in on the defender for around £15million.

The news comes following a campaign in which the 27-year-old managed just 13 Premier League starts, seemingly falling out of favour with Jose Mourinho.

There are already some clubs in the mix to sign the England international according to The Star, namely West Ham, West Brom and Everton.

The Toffees appear to be particularly in need of a new option at centre-half for next season, with Ashley Williams and Phil Jagielka both the wrong side of 30, so we asked Everton fans earlier this week whether they’d back a transfer swoop for the 6 foot 4 defender.

And according to our poll, the majority of Everton fans – 69% – would welcome a deal that sees Smalling move to Goodison Park this summer.
