It’s been one of the big never ending sagas of the transfer window so far but Everton finally completed the signing of Morgan Schneiderlin from Manchester United on Thursday night.
As reported by the BBC, the French midfielder has moved for a fee that could reach £24m, within touching distance of the £25m Man United paid for him from Southampton in 2015.

Schneiderlin had failed to find his way into Jose Mourinho’s plans this season, failing to make a single Premier League start under the new Manchester United boss.
For the Red Devils it’s a very good piece of business indeed for a player who is surplus to requirements.
For Everton too, this could prove to be a good deal. Schneiderlin is a very effective defensive midfielder, one of the most consistent over the last half decade and he should add some fight and determination in the middle of the park.
It’s been a transfer that has intrigued fans from teams all over the country and after finally hearing the signing had been confirmed, they took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
No doubt #Schneiderlin would be back to his best at Everton
He would be great addition for them
Wish him the best for his future

Think Man Utd could have a made a mistake letting Schneiderlin go, never got a fair chance. Will prove a great signing for Everton I'm sure

Morgan Schneiderlin is still a very good player. Perhaps he didn't show it a lot for Man Utd, but when playing for Everton, he'll return.

Mourinho getting the exact fee of £24m for Morgan Schneiderlin is brilliant. LvG let Hernandez, Welbeck and RvP all together leave for less.

Schneiderlin a great signing for #EFC. He’s brilliant, and a pairing of him and Idrissa Gueye is the type that thrives in Koeman’s system.

Schneiderlin alongside Idrissa Gueye could become a brilliant partnership in the middle for Everton, gutted to see him leave United
