Garbutt Recalled

by Adam Clark @efc_adamclark

Defender Luke Garbutt has been recalled from his loan spell at Colchester United.

The left-back, 20, has been with the League One outfit since September but will now be available for first-team selection with immediate effect.

A successful loan spell at the Colchester Community Stadium saw Garbutt score three goals in 20 appearances and he leaves the club 12th in the table, eight points clear of the relegation zone.

Blues boss Roberto Martinez had been left short of cover for first-choice left-back Leighton Baines following the broken leg suffered by Bryan Oviedo in Saturday's game at Stevenage.

Garbutt has made one first team outing for Everton, as a substitute in last season's Capital One Cup second round win over Leyton Orient.
