Everton announce Mampala deal, but fans’ focus is elsewhere

With the World Cup coming to an end, football fans up and down the country will be keen for their clubs to ramp up their transfer activity.

The window closes earlier than normal on August 9, which means that squads will be complete come the start of the domestic season, but Everton supporters are getting frustrated by the lack of incomings at Goodison Park.

The biggest transfer news for Everton so far is that Wayne Rooney recently left after one season back at his boyhood club.

New manager Marco Silva is yet to bring in a new signing since taking over from Sam Allardyce, but the Merseyside outfit have been linked to a handful of players.

On Tuesday, Everton made an announcement via Twitter, but it was not one that fans were hoping for.

The club announced that teenage starlet Manasse Mampala has signed his first professional contract.

Everton fans were understandably happy for the 17-year-old, but some responded to the Twitter post with calls for new signings.
