Pundit impressed by 'great business' as terms of Kean Everton exit revealed
Moise Kean’s deadline day return to Juventus is “good business” for Everton, according to Alan Hutton.
The former Scotland international, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, said both Kean and Everton would be happy with the terms of the deal.
Juventus confirmed the terms of Kean’s return, which is a two-year loan with an obligation to buy, on Tuesday (31st August).
They will pay £6million (€7million) in loan fees for the 2021/22 and 2022/23 campaigns.
The Italian giants will then splash out £24million (€28million) to buy the striker, with a further £2.5million (€3million) in add-ons.
As such, the total value of the deal could earn Everton around £32.5million.

Juventus confirmed back in 2019 Everton had agreed a deal worth a possible £27.5m (€30million) to sign Kean.
With the Toffees set to make a potential £5million profit, Hutton admitted he had mixed feelings about the move.
“It’s great business for a player that hasn’t really worked out at the club,” he told Football Insider‘s Russell Edge.
“I was looking forward to seeing him come over here to this league.
“He’s a young boy with a lot of talent, I thought he would do well but it’s not worked out for him.
“Everton haven’t lost anything, they’re happy and the player is happy.
“We didn’t see the best of him for whatever reason, whether it was the pandemic or just adjusting to the league.”
The 21-year-old scored just four goals in 39 games for the Toffees.
He was shipped out on loan to PSG last season.
He netted 17 goals in all competitions for the French giants.
