Fabian Delph hasn’t set the place alight since joining Everton from Manchester City last summer and a lot of supporters from Everton FC Group are willing to let him go already.

The 30-year-old has struggled for form and fitness in his 10 months at Goodison Park and may be at risk of losing his place in the side next season if things don’t improve.

Delph ended up making fewer appearances than Tom Davies and put in a lot of average performances too.

Everton's Cenk Tosun reacts to a missed chance v Southampton

Which club did Everton loan Cenk Tosun out to in January?

Andrew Corfe: “Why was he ever bought, given his appalling game-to-injury ratio throughout his career?”

Stephen Barker: “Passed his best and not doing what he was brought in to do. Big wages and too many missed games.”

Salvatore Santoro: “Sell.”

Roddy Kemp: “Sell.”

Matty Roberts: “Get rid. I’m baffled why we bought him in in the first place.”

John Head: “Sell!”

Peter Hurstfield: “I’d give him away.”

Michael Driscoll: “Sell. Useless.”

Rob Cookson: “Be Ruthless….Sell sell sell….”

Christian Cooke: “He’ll be a hard player to sell with his lofty wages, but Delph hasn’t had a good season.”

Mark Partington: “Sell.”

Mike Powell: “Sell.”

Graham Spraggs: “Sell. Too much sideways movement and passing. Offers limited protection to the defence.”

Kris Efc Sheehan: “Sicknote – sell.”

Vinay Keenoo: “Sell.”

Delph joined on a three-year deal from City last summer and has gone on to make 20 appearances in all competitions.

As per Transfermarkt, the England international played in only 16 of Everton’s 29 Premier League games (55.2%) and amasses 1190 minutes of top-flight football from a possible 2610 (45.6%).

He missed all of August with a groin injury, struggled with a hamstring injury in October which limited appearances in November and December, was suspended in February and had a knock in March.

And with Delph not putting in many good performances when he was fit, it’s no surprise why fans are turning off him.
