Everton fans react to Klaassen starting for Under-23s

Everton paid Ajax just under £24m to sign Davy Klaassen during the summer transfer window.

The Netherlands international arrived at Goodison Park off the back of scoring 20 goals in 49 appearances during the 2016-17 season, and it would be fair to say that the Everton supporters were excited with the acquisition.

It has just not happened for Klaassen in England, however, with the 25-year-old only making four Premier League appearances this term.

Klaassen has not even been in the Everton squad for a Premier League match since the end of October, which is an indication of his current standing on Merseyside.

Klaassen was in the Everton Under-23s side that beat Swansea City Under-23s 2-0 on Monday night, and the club’s supporters have been reacting to the situation that the Dutchman currently finds himself in.

It is not quite what the midfielder, who is believed to pick up £100,000 a week at Goodison Park, would have had in mind.
