Everton fans have taken to Twitter to express their despair after forward David Henen revealed he is quitting the club.

The Belgian attacker, 22, took to his personal Twitter account on Wednesday afternoon to say his goodbyes to Toffees fans, with the message ‘once a blue, always a blue’ and ‘thank you for everything’.

Capped by Belgium at Under-19 level, Henen initially joined the Blues on loan in the summer of 2014 but made the switch from Olympiacos permanent the following summer.

The youngster played a pivotal role in Everton’s Premier League 2 title success last term and Under-23s’ boss David Unsworth has described the forward as being “absolutely fantastic” in the past couple of seasons.

But Henen is out of contract next month and made it clear that he is heading on to pastures new.
