With his big £75million move to Manchester United pretty much a formality from this point on, Romelu Lukaku has used Instagram to say a fond farewell to everybody at Everton.

Currently out in Los Angeles, the 24-year-old Belgian striker took the time to thank everybody who helped him on his way at Goodison during the four goal-laden seasons he spent with the Toffees…

Incidentally, the song Lukaku has chosen to splice into his montage is ‘Forever Everton’ – a rompy-pompy staple of the Goodison PA system to this very day.

It was actually written in the early 1970s by none other than Graham Gouldman. While a budding songwriter at the time, Gouldman very shortly went onto become one of the four founding members of art-pop geniuses 10cc.

How about that for a neat little nugget of trivia?
