Everton fans have been reacting to the latest reports on some possible departures this summer, and fans couldn’t be happier to wave goodbye to four first team players.
According to the Daily Star, Ashley Williams, Morgan Schneiderlin, Wayne Rooney and Yannick Bolasie will all leave the club this summer.
Marco Silva and Marcel Brands are looking to revamp the Toffees’ squad, and the first order of business for the pair is trimming the wage bill.
The Toffees have far too many players that aren’t good enough, so offloading some of that talent, hopefully for some reasonable fees, would be an excellent summer strategy and help contribute to incoming transfers.

Williams took plenty of stick for his disappointing performances last season, and Schneiderlin has never really lived up to expectations since his move from Manchester United.
Rooney hit a brilliant patch of form shortly before Christmas, but did not register a single goal or assist after returning from illness.
Bolasie is perhaps the saddest story of the lot, as the tricky winger had bags of potential when he joined but seems to have been severely hampered by the knee injury he sustained in December 2016.
Fans are delighted to see the backs of all four players, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…

If that happens it must be around 450k off the wage bill hopefully after then can start getting a few in.
