"I love this guy" - Amadou Onana's latest Instagram post has given Everton fans a lot of hope

"I love this guy" - Amadou Onana's latest Instagram post has given Everton fans a lot of hope

Onana had been linked with a move away in January.

Everton fans are thrilled with the mentality of midfielder Amadou Onana after he decided to stay at the club amid interest in the January transfer window.

The Toffees are currently 19th in the Premier League table after a dismal start to 2023. Everton parted ways with former manager Frank Lampard last month and are level on points with basement side Southampton.

Sean Dyche officially replaced Lampard earlier this week and hoped to get a few bodies through the door at Finch Farm before Tuesday's deadline.

Despite selling Anthony Gordon to Newcastle United over the weekend, Everton ended the window as the only Premier League side not to make a signing.

They attempted moves for Conor Gallagher, Andre Ayew, Ismaila Sarr and Olivier Giroud in the final two days but didn't manage to get them over the line.

Everton could've been significantly weakened in the final week of the window if Onana, who arrived from Lille for £33 million in the summer, ended up departing.

The 21-year-old was linked with Arsenal and Chelsea, who decided to chase other options and completed the signings of Jorginho and Enzo Fernandez on deadline day.

Onana has shown unwavering commitment to Everton in times of uncertainty. He doubled down on his love for the Merseyside outfit on Wednesday evening with a post on Instagram, which quickly went viral.

The Belgium international captioned a series of training photos: "Said what I said and did what I did #Aintleavingtheship #AO8."

Onana's hashtags could be in reference to comments made by talkSPORT personality Simon Jordan earlier this week.

He stopped short of calling Gordon, who had been with his boyhood club since the age of 11, a rat but still condemned the nature of his exit.

Everton fans were loving Onana's post and hope he can help guide them to Premier League safety over the next few months.

One person said: "Thank you lad, proper attitude proper player. When the ship begins to sink the rats leave and the captain stays."

A second commented: "A real man standing up for his clan. Much love Onana."

Someone put: "This is what club legends are made of."

While a fourth added: "Carrying the club on his back. Hopefully this kind of spirit can spread through the squad."
