Indeed, the 37-year-old centre-back, who spent six years at Goodison Park, left the Toffees for the Cherries this summer but has made a pledge to supporters of his former club.
Distin says he will never 'have a dig' at Everton as he has too much respect and passion for the club.
The Frenchman may have been responding to recent quotes attributed to him in the press.
Will never have a dig at Everton, too much respect and passion for this club. Any of the lads will tell you that...— Sylvain Distin (@sylvaind15tin) July 28, 2015
The Toffees made it clear Distin was free to go last summer but the maths of a move made sense considering the current Bournemouth man's age.
There appears to be plenty of respect between Everton and the veteran, hence the 37-year-old's Twitter message.
Elsewhere at Goodison Park, speculation continues to grow regarding the sale of several players this summer, with boss Roberto Martinez remaining tight-lipped on the future of young defender John Stones, according to Sky Sports.
He was also full of praise recently for striker Romelu Lukaku, despite reports, such as those of the Daily Telegraph, also linking him with an Everton exit. Manchester United are supposedly tracking the Belgian.
