A number of Everton fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from The Sun over the weekend suggesting that the Toffees may be open to selling Yerry Mina as they monitor John Stones’s situation at Manchester City.
Stones’s future is reportedly uncertain, and The Sun has suggested that he is open to returning to Goodison Park.
The Sun adds that Carlo Ancelotti is keen on signing a new centre-back, and thus, Mina may also be available with Valencia plotting a £15 million bid.
Mina has not quite managed to silence all of his critics during his time on Merseyside. There have been some impressive performances, but he is currently providing cover for Michael Keane and Mason Holgate.
Nevertheless, it appears that more Everton fans would rather see Ancelotti keep faith with the Colombian.
Plenty remain optimistic that he can come good with the Toffees.
And with Stones struggling during his time with City, some have their doubts about bringing him back. They are unconvinced that he would represent an upgrade on Mina.
It does appear that there would be a lot of discontent if Mina was sold for £15 million.
Admittedly, some believe that selling him may be a good idea. But it looks fair to say that selling Mina and bringing Stones back may prove a fairly unpopular move at this stage.
Here is what some of the fans make of the reports concerning Mina…
Cost them more than that!

Keep Yerry all day long. Stones had his chance and thought he was bigger than the club. Now 5th choice at City he’s gone backwards. No better than what we already have and would probably do well at West Ham.

I’m not a big fan of Mina so would be happy to see him go if we have a replacement. I’m just not sure about Stones

Keep Mina. Just needs to stay fit

I wouldn’t be against Mina going, fact he’s been here almost two years now and we are still unsure of him says a lot.
Plenty of top young CBs out there we could go for.
