‘Gutting’, ‘Stupid’ – Everton fans think selling Antonee Robinson is a mistake

Everton have decided to let Antonee Robinson leave.

Everton have confirmed the permanent departure of Antonee Robinson on the club’s official website. Wigan Athletic have signed Robinson on a three-year deal after agreeing on an undisclosed fee with Everton.

Robinson came through the ranks at Everton but was never given the chance to make his full debut. Many fans believed that 2019/20 could be the season that he steps up but he has now left permanently.

The 21-year-old has spent the last two seasons out on loan in the Championship. During the 2017/18 season, Robinson played 34 games for Bolton Wanderers and was a key part of their survival bid.

Last season, Robinson was at Wigan, where he made 26 appearances. The USA international now rejoins the Latics on a permanent deal after Everton let him leave.

This came as a surprise to quite a few fans, who rated Robinson as one for the future. Leighton Baines is probably entering his final year as an Everton player so this decision could be short-sighted; Marco Silva will need a new left-back to compete with Lucas Digne next summer.

Here are some tweets from Everton fans after Robinson’s departure was confirmed.
