It was former boss Ronald Koeman, sacked in October last year after a rotten start to the 2017/18 season, who lured the defender away from Swansea City, with the Swans without doubt the only winners from the Dutchman’s backfiring decision.

Everton supporters have been pretty despondent in recent times after seeing their side suffer a last-gasp defeat in the Merseyside derby at the weekend.

Everton and Swansea fans… what do you think?

As such, it’s the Swans who are the only winners from Koeman’s backfiring decision to sign the centre back in 2016.

Thus, while Swansea did eventually lose their Premier League status last season, they did exceptionally well to get £12.6 million out of the 31-year-old, who has since looked a shadow of the player that shone in South Wales.

And while the defender went on to appear 36 times in his first season at Goodison Park, helping the club to a seventh place finish in the top-flight, he simply wasn’t able to replicate his Swansea form at Everton on a regular enough basis.

Yet the Toffees returned to Goodison Park empty-handed as a late Divock Origi header following a mistake from Jordan Pickford sealed a 1-0 victory for the Reds, thus inflicting a fourth defeat of the season on Silva’s side.
