Last Updated: 10/07/17 2:16pm
With Wayne Rooney returning to Everton - we asked football fans across the country: which former player would you bring back?
The 31-year-old has brought the curtain down on a glittering 13-year spell at Manchester United to return to the club he first joined at the age of nine. The move has sparked a mix of excitement and nostalgia among Everton fans as they are living the dream of having one of their former heroes back at the club.
So, we decided to put the question out to our three million followers @SkyFootball to see which players were missed most at their clubs.
Here, we have collated the best responses....
@Brian_Mzobe7: "Eric Cantona back at Man United - The man was pure class and a joy to watch"
