I can accept his reasoning might be selfish, but ultimately sound and what almost any footballer would do in his present situation, that's even without knowing what really goes on at Finch Farm.
What I find indefensible is the fucking cowardice of it. He leaves his supposedly fellow Evertonians to speculate and in some cases fall out over him, at least Lukaku always stated his intentions.
I can only see it as Ross knows some things are better left unsaid, because as long as he stays schutm there is still room to hope he loves us, personally I'd rather he or his agent had the gonads to issue some kind of statement instead of things coming out 2nd hand through Koeman and Moshiri.
On that note, the only way I'll be happy to see him in the Royal Blue is that he has made some kind of statement or even better, actually signs a contract. No more silence is golden for Ross.
