A few Everton fans have been reacting on social media after the club confirmed that youth defender Morgan Feeney has joined Tranmere Rovers on loan.
It was Feeney’s second PL2 title having clinched the trophy in 2016/17, as well, when he was one of the youngest players in Unsworth’s squad.
Feeney has since gone on to be named captain of the U23s and has 68 appearances at age level to his name, including 15 outings in all competitions this term which have seen the Bootle-born product net twice.
He will now move to League One side Tranmere for the remainder of the season, where he will play under head coach Micky Mellon as the Prenton Park side strive to retain their third-tier status.
Does Feeney have a first-team future with Everton?
Here are some of the messages shared as fans reacted to news of Feeney’s Deadline Day loan deal with Tranmere…
