Finally! Everton fans rejoice as Theo Walcott looks set to leave the club

Everton fans on Twitter have been busy celebrating the news that Theo Walcott’s future at the club could be in doubt, after Marcel Brands outlined his vision for the club’s future business in the market.

The Toffees sporting director revealed that the club ‘don’t want to invest big money in players who are older’, and referenced the age bracket between 20-25/26 as the target range for future signings.

In this era of ‘big 6’ dominance, has finishing 7th become as good as winning a trophy? The Pl>ymaker FC squad have their say in the video below…

Walcott was signed during Sam Allardyce’s time at the club for a fee in excess of £20m at a time where he was 28 years of age, and is reportedly the club’s highest earner on a salary of £110,000-a-week, representing the exact type of signing Brands wishes to avoid.

The former Arsenal man isn’t justifying his wages out on the pitch, recording just three goals and two assists in 31 Premier League outings this season – 23 of those being starts.

The 5 ft 9 ace’s performances have been underwhelming to say the least, and judging by the Everton fans’ reactions on Twitter, they’d be happy to see the back of him…
