Everton fans react as Martina nears exit

Loads of Everton fans have been reacting to the latest transfer news, as it looks like Cuco Martina could join Ashley Williams at Stoke City.

According to Football Insider, Martina is “closing in” on a season-long switch to Stoke.

The 28 year-old is unlikely to see any playing time at Everton with Leighton Baines and Seamus Coleman returning to full fitness and Lucas Digne joining in the summer, and the Toffees are “happy to let him leave”.

The former Southampton man, whose Premier League highlight was that incredible long-range goal in the Saints’ 4-0 win over Arsenal, played 28 times for the Toffees last season.

While Martina is definitely not up to the standard required at Everton, the flying full back always gave 100 per cent, something that could not be said for Williams.

Marcel Brands and Marco Silva are hard at work trying to reduce the oversized squad and wage bill, and getting Martina off the books for a season is another smart move from the pair.
