Demarai Gray, an Everton winger, appeared to have criticized the Toffees boss Sean Dyche on his personal social media account.
Gray was in discussions to join Fulham, but the deal fell through before the transfer window shut.
The 27-year-old has also been connected to clubs in Saudi Arabia and the Turkish Super Lig team Besiktas.

Gray cost £1.7 million when he transferred from Bayer Leverkusen to the Toffees in 2021. Since then, he has made 75 appearances and scored 12 goals.
Although he represented Jamaica at the CONCACAF Gold Cup in the summer, he has not yet appeared for Everton this year.
“It was a bit of everything – his fitness, his fitness to play in the side, the situation around him, and all of the noise,” said Dyche when questioned about Gray after his side’s 2-2 draw at Sheffield United on Saturday.
“Hopefully, over the next couple of weeks that will become clear and he will get himself fit as a start point.”
When asked if Gray would remain with the team, Dyche responded, “I do at this time.”
