Everton supporters have expressed that they would not mind the club re-signing Marouane Fellaini in the January transfer window.
Talk of a re-signing for the Belgian arose amongst supporters due to the link between David Moyes and the vacant hot seat at Goodison Park (via BBC).
While the speculation began as a tongue in cheek remark, some supporters believed that the 32-year-old middleman would be a step up from the club’s current crop of midfielders.
Marouane Fellaini back in January. Watch this space.

Would you be happy to see Marouane Fellaini re-sign for the Toffees?
Yes, he'd do a job
No, he's past it
The £8.55-million rated man spent five years at Goodison Park between 2008 and 2013, with his stay coming to an end when he made the switch from Merseyside to Manchester United along with David Moyes (via Transfermarkt).
Over his duration with the Toffees, the Belgian made 177 appearances in Everton blue, in which he bagged 33 goals and 26 assists (via Transfermarkt).
Ahead of the potential return to Goodison Park for Moyes, a few supporters hinted at a few members of the old band getting a nod to return for the Toffees alongside the 32-year-old.
I’d have him back

Jags on loan….

At least he’d guarantee 110% week in week out

What do we think?
While a return of the Belgian for the Toffees will likely remain in the imagination of supporters, they may not be far wrong that he could offer more than the current crop of middlemen at the club.
In 22 games in the Chinese Super League, the midfielder has bagged an impressive seven goals and four assists (per Transfermarkt), while the league is not to the standard of the Premier League, the stats show he still has something to offer.
