Everton is to recall midfielder John Lundstram from his loan spell with Blackpool.
The 20-year-old joined the Championship outfit on a season-long loan in August but is being recalled by the Blues after making 17 appearances for the Seasiders.
Lundstram will return to Merseyside on January 3.
The move to Blackpool was Lundstram's fourth loan stint in two years after previous spells with Doncaster, Yeovil and Leyton Orient.
The midfielder has represented England at U17, U18, U19 and U20 level.
Meanwhile, winger Matthew Kennedy will be returning to Goodison Park following the conclusion of his six-month loan spell at Hibernian after Alan Stubbs's side face Hearts in the Edinburgh derby on Saturday.
