Dean sounded pretty emphatic in the pre-Palace presser that he's being sent back from whence he came.

When the bus heads north after the match can we leave him behind?

It took last weeks abysmal display to finally get him dropped the week before he is unable to play any way.

...which followed two better performances in the previous couple of games, including a good showing at Goodison.

2 better performances, hardly difficult against the standard he set.

It's a shame. I saw him play for Everton reserves against our reserves just before he broke in to their first team - looked a great player.  Really hoped he'd do well with us, but it's clear - as others have said - that whatever's going on with him isn't something that we could sort out in 12 months, even trying to play him out of poor form, even in a team where he could be a focal point.

We need a player like Ross when he's on one.  Jack & him were irresistible against Liverpool.  But whatever's wrong, it's not something we can fix (or have time to - we've very much an upwards trajectory right now).  I imagine he'll be out on loan with an option to buy next season.  Maybe somewhere like Celtic/Rangers?  That might be his best bet.

Integrity means acknowledging his good performances as well as the bad ones, whatever you think about him.

There's no way we'll be trying to bring him in this summer. Be interesting to see where he ends up.

he ainít ever playing for Chelsea again, they have exhausted the mug punter option of someone paying his wages and a hired gun fee, so it will be either another loan with Chelsea paying most of his wages or they buy out his contract.
He will probably get loaned to lower prem or championship club.
Fulham is a possibility.

Someone decent will take a punt on him, there is a player in there. My guess is Leicester on the cheap.

Agree. He did show glimpses of what he can bring to the team and when he did, we looked better for it but it was nowhere near often enough unfortunately.

Looks like he's signed for a club in China;

Thereís a good player in there, or at least there was. Shame for whatever reason that early form disappeared. He looked amazing at first.
