    Bought for 8m sold for 10m 3 years later.
    Good for City apart from losing a hg player), good for Delph at 30 with potential greater playing time.
    Did a job for us, consumate pro, gets to count medals in retirement, won more PL's than Stevie Starfish.
    If Danilo stays, Angelino already replaced him.
    What's not to like?

    I'm a little confused. Angelino is home grown or club trained? If it is the latter then we still need an English player in to fill our homegrown quota right?

    Looking for the orange one
    For the best for us and him.

    Been a loyal and dependable part of the squad and showed great adaptability and attitude in playing out of position so often.

    A very good player who will be the best player player at Everton.

    Thanks and all the best to the kid.

    Can’t think of another established serial title winning England international with vast experience who’s also versatile going for anything like that figure.

    All the best to Delph he’s a top quality player, with great attitude who’s always been given undeserved stick on here despite giving us everything. Was absolutely crucial in our centurion season and will forever be remembered for it.

    Not impressed with City getting only £8m for a player who captained England earlier this year. We simply have no idea where negotiating is concerned.

    Almost 30, injury prone, poor last season, big wages. Don't think it's that hard to understand.

    I think City getting 250K for every game he's likely to play in the remainder of his career is pretty good; 2 seasons at 18 games and a 3rd season of 4 games .. and that's based on him not jumping in to any red card tackles !

    I agree. Instead of sending him to Turkey, the lad can play, hopefully, a large part for Everton and he won't have to uproot and move house if he doesn't want to.

    Getting back what we paid, iir, and doing a favour for a man that has been a good servant to the club.

    Good luck to him. He was a revelation during the Centurion season. He doesn't really have a place in our squad at the moment and he deserves to be a regular for someone.
