The France international spent the previous campaign on loan with Everton, where he formed an impressive partnership with Michael Keane and the Toffees are said to have made an attempt to pursue him on a permanent basis from the Blues.

Danny Mills slams Everton midfielder after Crystal Palace draw

Former Premier League star Danny Mills has criticised midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin following his sending off for Everton in the Premier League opener. The France international picked up two yellow cards leading to the send-off against Crystal Palace and that stemmed the Toffees pursuit of the winning goal at Selhurst Park.

Speaking to Football Insider, Mills acknowledged that Schneiderlin was unfortunate to receive a yellow card for the first incident but he should have shown more cautious thereafter, he said: “I think the first yellow card was a little bit harsh, I don’t think there was an awful lot in that. Having said that, once you’ve got one you can’t do anything, you’ve got to have the most perfect behaviour. It wasn’t dramatic what he did, it wasn’t disastrous but once Everton went down, it looked like it held them back a little bit.”
