Everton supporters have reacted to the news of Aaron Lennon’s departure on Twitter.
The 30-year-old winger has today (Tuesday) joined Burnley on loan for an undisclosed fee. During his time at Goodison Park, the experienced Englishman attained 77 first-team appearances, scoring nine goals.
Lennon initially joined Everton from Tottenham on loan for the second half of the 2014/15 season, scoring twice in 14 games. That summer, the winger joined the Toffees on a permanent basis and had always played with great commitment to the Merseyside team.
Lennon is widely considered as a fan favourite by Tottenham supporters, having spent nine-and-a-half years of his career with the North London team. During that time the Burnley wideman amassed 364 appearances scoring a total of 30 goals. To date, he has won major honour to his name, having won the League Cup with Spurs, and he also attained 21 caps for England.
Here’s how Everton supporters reacted to his departure on social media…
Half as much effort from the other lads that Aaron put in and we’d be sitting in a comfortable position in the league. Good luck @AaronLennon12 ?

Brilliant player, I am glad he has overcome his demons, came back stronger & more positive. What an example and role model for all Aaron is! Burnley are lucky to have you. Best of luck and score plenty. Just not against us though eh lol.
