Henry Onyekuru has thanked Everton on Twitter are leaving the Toffees on Monday.

The Nigerian striker, who never made an appearance for the Premier League side, has joined Monaco on a permanent basis, for £12 million [The Daily Mail].

Work permit issues denied Onyekuru from ever turning out for Everton, after signing for them in an £6.8million deal two years ago.

The Goodison Park side loaned him to Galatasaray last summer, and the 22-year-old is grateful for the chance to experience Turkish football.

 

Failing to acknowledge the Everton fans was an odd decision by Onyekuru.

Despite never playing for the Merseyside outfit, they have been supporting him from afar. Anything positive he did in Turkey, the Toffees faithful were quick to congratulate him on Twitter.

He'll have been aware of the support, so snubbing them in his farewell message could be considered strange.

He scored 14 goals as Gala won the Turkish title last term.
