Some Everton fans happy as Robin Olsen set for loan extension

Some Everton fans were feeling happy after a report emerged over a potential loan extension for Robin Olsen.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Roma’s general director Tiago Pinto has begun discussions with the outfit over extending the ace’s loan into next season. Sport Witness have claimed the move could help boost the value of the ‘keeper, who is contracted to the Serie A outfit until 2023.

Olsen enjoyed a fairly successful spell at Goodison Park, making 11 appearances across all competitions, even displacing Jordan Pickford on some occasions.

Carlo Ancelotti spoke of the player in glowing terms, claiming way back in December 2020 that Everton want to make his move to Merseyside a permanent one.

Here are how fans reacted to the news…
