More twitter chat that he’s fit, but refusing to play.

Where's that, hope it's bull, surely we wouldn't be paying him wages.

I'm pretty sure he's in breach of contract if he refuses to play.

Just some lad to be fair and it was a few days ago but stumbled across it. I just get a bad feeling from the whole thing.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Just don't see that happening. Surely it'd be in his interests to get match fit again. We haven't even seen him back in training yet have we? He wasn't refusing to train before the injury, as that is when it happened.

Plus he has like no time left no his contract, it's not like we have much say in the matter whether he goes so refusing to play doesn't really help him all that much surely? Unless he thinks this would force our hand in January...but again it's not like the club weren't willing to sell already.

There was a picture of him in his training gear jogging at FF recently, nobody else with him though. I don't think he's going to play for us again.

I'd not be surprised if he doesn't play again for us. I would expect to see him back in training though. I'm not trying to make excuses as I have nothing to base this on, maybe he is being excluded due to his own actions, I just don't think it makes sense to either party. Plus, it was only a few weeks ago Unsworth was saying he'd hope he'd be back fit and would think about signing...so I don't think from the club's perspective bridges have been burnt entirely. Unless something dramatic has happened in recent weeks.

This situation is so strange.

I've never known a hamstring injury to last this long, so obviously there's some shenanigans going on.

But at the same time I can't fathom how someone can grow up a massive evertonian and fall out of love with Everton, especially when we are his exact level at the moment and pay massive wages.

How long has he been out for though since the second injury in training? It feels like a while but I thought as it was a bad one so they were saying it'd be around this timeframe before he came back.

I did think we'd see him returning to training soon, but there has been a total lack of information so who knows.

Been training pretty much alone for a bit now hasn't he?

Poch has apparently said something about him without mentioning his name tonight.

Papers running with Chelsea and Spurs both want him in Jan.

How can an Evertonian watch everton struggle the way they have this season and sit on his arse collecting a cheque?

I think him doing a u-turn on the Chelsea move a potentially costing the club £35m is a seriously fucking burnt bridge.

Yet they'd still sign him up tomorrow if they thought they could as it'd make fiscal sense to do so.

Sam's apparently going to ask all first team squad of they want to stay or not before he looks to recruit. This could be interesting.

He’s just uploaded a picture to his Instagram story. Looks like a he’s got a massive scar on his hamstring, must of actually had surgery. The picture had the caption “Not Long Now”...
