Everton attacker Demarai Gray has now sent a five-word message to Ishe Samuels-Smith following the 17-year-old’s Goodison Park exit.
Samuels-Smith, who never made a senior appearance for Everton, surprisingly completed a £4m move to Chelsea last week.
However, given the club’s precarious financial situation, it seems that the Blues have resorted to selling potential future stars to make up for their transfer mistakes of the past.
The teenager posted a message confirming his move to Chelsea, stating: “Time for a new chapter and challenge. Honour to join such a historical club, can’t wait to get started. let’s go to work @chelseafc.”

Commenting on Ishe’s post, Demarai Gray said: “Makes sense. Well done bro.”
Demarai Gray Instagram remarks to Samuels-Smith a show of disrespect towards Everton
What exactly Gray means by ‘makes sense’ is not clear, though it seems an unnecessary and disrespectful remark to Everton.
He could mean that it ‘makes sense’ that such a talented youngster would attract the attention of one of the Premier League’s elite, or that a move to Chelsea could further his career more than staying at Everton, or indeed he could be referencing Everton’s need to generate revenue.
Given his provocative comment, I doubt many Everton fans would be sad to see him follow the youngster out the Goodison Park exit.
