    Fans react: Newcastle snubbed as Tom Cleverley to leave Everton to join Hornets

    Tom Cleverley to Watford

    The news wires lit up on Thursday morning with news that Tom Cleverley is on his way out of Everton.

    Cleverley, who had also been linked with a possible move to Newcastle, is now poised to join Watford imminently.

    The deal comes as Everton are set to boost their midfield options with the arrival of Morgan Schneiderlin from Man United.

    Schneiderlin spot on the Toffees roster means that Cleverley had little chance of featuring for Ronald Koeman’s side this season, especially after they were knocked out the FA Cup in the 3rd round by Leicester.

    So is the move a smart deal?

    For Cleverley it’s hard to argue that joining Watford is a bad career choice, as he gets to stay in the Premier League and the Hornets have more than a fighting chance of avoiding relegation this season.

    But should he have joined Newcastle? Some Magpies fans seem to believe they’ve dodged a bullet.
