Everton delete tweet after appearing to accidentally reveal new signing

Everton delete tweet after appearing to accidentally reveal new signing

Everton fans immediately jumped all over a video of the players in pre-season training after believing they heard a name.

Everton fans think the club have accidentally let slip who their latest signing is going to be, after the club deleted a social media post.

It feels quite rare that transfers just suddenly creep up on us these days and we normally get at least a few days of reports before anything happens.

If and when Manchester United finally announce the signing of Andre Onana it's hardly going to come as a surprise to anyone.

And Declan Rice's move to Arsenal has been inevitable for weeks at this point so it's barely even worth the club actually announcing it!

However every now and again there is a transfer that gets done pretty quickly or out of the blue that does leave us on the back foot a little.

Certainly Liverpool managed it with their signing of Cody Gakpo back in January, with news of their interest being immediately followed by a successful bid in the space of 24 hours.

Perhaps Everton were hoping to follow their Merseyside neighbours by springing a transfer on everyone but they might have messed up their own plan.

The club posted a video of players in pre-season training and fans think that a bit of chatter in the background revealed a potential signing.

In a now deleted Instagram post, fans think they heard the line "We've got Jonny Evans coming in."

Centre back Evans was part of the Leicester City squad who went down to the Championship last season but the 35-year-old's appearances were restricted by injury.

Many might even argue if he'd been available for more of the season they'd have stayed up, such was their ability in front of goal compared to defending their own.

Everton had the opposite problem and having already brought in Ashley Young there may be some questions as to why they aren't attempting to bolster their forward line.

Sean Dyche's side only scored 34 league goals in the previous campaign and only Wolverhampton Wanderers found the back of the net fewer times.

Perhaps the Toffees will be hoping that Dele Alli can get back to somewhere near his best after his heartbreaking revelations on Thursday, it appears he is in good hands with his current manager.
