So, it's official, Wayne Rooney is back at Everton.
The Toffees announced the news on Sunday with a slick teaser video on Twitter, accompanied by the words: "Once a Blue... #WelcomeHomeWayne."
And the football world has been reacting to the news, with some less than complementary offerings on social media from various rival supporters!
