Everton sign Fernandes – any hard feelings?

Everton supremo David Moyes has moved swiftly to cure his pining for soon to be absent Steven Pienaar by swooping for Valencia’s Manuel Fernandes, even though the official Everton site hasn’t said anything yet (probably still reeling from yesterday’s result), but the Observer, one of the last bastions of press honestly matter-of-factly states that:

“Everton have taken Portugal international Manuel Fernandes on loan for the second consecutive January window. The former Benfica and Portsmouth midfielder had agreed to join the club on a permanent transfer last summer only to switch to Valencia at the last minute.”

So will Fernandes be welcomed back with open arms or will his second debut for the club be flecked with boos?
