Some Everton fans have questioned Marco Silva’s decision to move Beni Baningime out on loan to Wigan Athletic.
Everton managed to keep hold of both James McCarthy and Idrissa Gueye yesterday, meaning Silva still has plenty of options in central midfield.
With Baningime already struggling for game time at Goodison Park, the youngster’s chances at Everton looked set to be limited for the rest of the season.
And Everton decided that a temporary switch to Wigan would benefit the 20-year-old.
Supporters of the Toffees have been left slightly bemused by the decision though, as they feel he has plenty to offer their first-team.
Surprised Baningime has gone out on loan tbh. Would like to see him, Holgate and Joe Williams integrated into the first team squad next season #EFC— Paul Brown (@PaulBrownEFC) January 31, 2019
Should of kept him and let Tom Davies go out on loan— Robert Darby (@robertdarby36) February 1, 2019
Should be in and around our first team rather than loaning him— Ryan Sangster (@Sangster_Ryan_D) January 31, 2019
Why he's amazing— Liam Howard 107 (@107Liam) January 31, 2019
NOOOOO— Leo (9-6-9) (@ZonaImarking_) January 31, 2019
Taking an interest in Wigan now. Potential to be top class— James (@Richarlisxn_) January 31, 2019
If McCarthy is staying, then It's understandable. Hope he gets some good experience.— Ryan Bruder (@RyanBruder97) January 31, 2019
Would have Beni over Schniderlin any day
Why tf have we loaned out baningime ffs— ₂₀ (@BernardDuxrte) January 31, 2019
Baningime has not made a senior appearance for Everton this term, although he did catch the eye last campaign when offered a chance.
Baningime could make his Wigan debut at the weekend when the Latics take on Queens Park Rangers.
