In Onyekuru’s view, the Belgian club and coach Hein Vanhaezebrouck, in particular, were annoyed by the Blues’ stance and took it out on the player once he had returned from a period of rehabilitation on Merseyside by relegating him to the bench. 06/05/2020 at The upshot was that Onyekuru failed to make his country’s World Cup squad, a major blow to his hopes of playing the requisite number of international matches to qualify for a work permit from the UK Department of Employment. I think Brands has more genuine Director of Football type involvement in wider aspects of the development of the footy side of the business than Walsh did. Also, the 20-year-old France youth international won four of five total duels after the interval and largely got involved in the game more, evidenced by the fact he made 29 touches to Onyekuru’s 15.

Considering we've had Hibbert, Osman, Rooney, Jeffers, Ball, and Dunne who have also gone on to have distinguished careers (albeit some a while ago)... Would it not be sensible to concentrate on both? That doesn't make you a selling club if he comes good, or a financial genius if he does nothing - it was just prudent to sell him for that price at the time. With a work permit still nowhere on the horizon and perhaps because his experience in Liverpool while he recovered from his knee injury had been a “difficult” and lonely one, he was, by his own admission, no longer thinking about playing in the Premier League.

I think it's a bit unbalanced to just compare Brands and Walsh on transfer work alone. 14:19:37, Posted Onyekuru would never make a senior appearance for Everton; that elusive work permit was stymied by injury and the young forward’s lack of international appearances during his two years at Everton.

With Marcel Brands now in the sporting director role at Everton, it’s likely that this modus operandi will continue and there will be plenty more hits and misses along the way… the hope being, of course, that there will be more Calvert-Lewins and Holgates than Onyekurus and Lookmans but, with younger players, you never really know for sure until you try.
