Jack Rodwell is set to undergo a medical at Manchester City on Sunday after Everton accepted a bid of around £15m for the midfielder.

The 21-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Eastlands in recent weeks, and the official confirmation of the news prompted a huge response from fans on Twitter.

Here are some of the Tweets that caught our eye.

Ryan Dodd (‏@RyanDodd_) reckons Rodwell has sold out: “Jack Rodwell will now have an image of being a young kid more bothered about money than his football career.”

And Niall O’Donnell (‏@Niall_ODonnell) is happy to see him go: “Glad Everton are getting £15-20m for Jack Rodwell, he’s not needed and he seems injury prone too. #overrated #goodbusiness”

Manchester United fan Josh Homer ‏(@JH1993_MUFC) is stunned by the news: “Jack Rodwell is joining City, that is bizarre”

But Brad Marshall ‏(@bradmarshall92) is backing Rodwell to shine at Eastlands in seasons to come: “Rodwell is a great signing for Mancini. One possibly two more seasons of De Jong dominance and then a Yaya-Jack partnership #solid”

Liverpool fan Craig Catterson (‏@TheCat247) believes this particular piece of transfer business show the Reds in a good light: “Well the Allen deal does sound so bad after hearing what man city are paying for jack rodwell”

Everton fan David Brown (‏@David_Brown9) is not too sad to see Rodwell go: “Can’t say i’m too depressed about Jack Rodwell going to City. As long as we get a good price and the banks don’t see a penny. #EFC”

Tone_Def ‏(@def_08) reckons the midfielder should snub City’s advances: “I think Jack Rodwell should reject a move to City and stay at everton(yes I know they need the money). He won’t play at city”

Phil Moorhouse ‏(@SuperPhilM) is happy with the move: “Jack Rodwell? That one came under the radar, still happy we’re finally going to get someone in! #mcfc”

DovDewar (‏@Ddewar69) doesn’t believe he’ll get a proper chance to impress at City: “Jack Rodwell to Man City, incredible prospect but what a waste of talent he’ll be on the bench all season”

And Guy In Photo ‏(@packets84) agrees: “If Jack Rodwell signs for City, it could be ruining of him. How many games will he get at city. He be better off at #Everton for now #mcfc”

Stuart Phazey ‏@StuPhazey is pleased with the proposed deal: “Jack Rodwell to City… Good business from Everton again! Often injured & should give Moyes some cash to wheel and deal!”

Matthew Jones ‏(@MatthewJones101) makes a popular comparison: “Who would you rather for £15m, Joe Allen or Jack Rodwell?”

But Manchester City fan (Shaf Saleem ‏@ShafBeats) is happy to see Rodwell arrive at Eastlands: “Welcome to Manchester Jack Rodwell, he’s only 21, got lots of potential, definitely one for the future! #MCFC”
