Crystal Palace recently struck yet another brilliant new signing as French international Steven Mandanda arrived at the club for a small fee.

He arrived from Marseille and is a big coup from the Eagles.

The club already have goalkeeping options in Wayne Hennessey, Alex McCarthy and Julian Speroni but this latest signing would suggest that the Welsh international’s time at the club might be coming to an impromptu end.

Palace fans were obviously delighted with this latest piece of business, especially with Andros Townsend also arriving at the club and James Tomkins looking like being next.

But not everyone on Twitter was pleased, just look at what Everton fans made of it all.

The Toffees are light in the goalkeeping department, with Tim Howard departing and most fans not 100 per cent convinced by Joel Robles.

Everton had been in the running for Mandanda but have lost out to Palace in the race for his signature, meaning new signing Maarten Stekelenburg might end up a rather uninspiring number one goalie.
