The 22 year old completed his switch £500,00 (possibly rising to £1.5 million )to Rovers last Friday and the player had a message for everyone involved at Everton as he tweeted:
“Sad about leaving Everton but can’t thank everyone at the club for what they have done for me from the first day I got there.
“The fans have been amazing and I will always follow Everton. I would like to wish everyone at the club every success and hope everything goes well.”
