Everton announced on Wednesday that defender Tyias Browning had joined Chinese Super League club Guangzhou Evergrande for an undisclosed fee, and Toffees fans were quick to react to the surprising player update on Twitter.

The 24-year-old only made nine first-team appearances in all competitions for the club whose youth system he came through, with the majority of his other outings coming for the U23s – 116 according to Transfermarkt.

The versatile defender, who has played as a centre-back and right-back throughout his career to date, failed to make much of an impact on Marco Silva this term following his return from a loan spell with Sunderland last season, making the squad in the Premier League on just the one occasion – against Huddersfield Town back in September.

Everton supporters took to social media to have their say on Browning’s surprise switch, and while one said “fair play Marcel” – presumably in relation to Brands managing to get a fee for the Liverpool-born man’s services, another said “£30m I heard”.
