Forward Returns To Everton

Anton Donkor has returned to Everton Football Club for a second loan spell after agreeing a deal until Tuesday 2 January, 2018.
 
The attacker joins from German Bundesliga club Wolfsburg and will again link up with David Unsworth’s title-winning Under-23s team.
 
Donkor signed for the Blues on loan in January but his first spell was disrupted by an ankle injury.
 
Now back fully fit, the 19-year-old is delighted to be given another opportunity with Everton.

“I’m very happy to be back,” Donkor told evertonfc.com. “I’m looking forward to pre-season to show my teammates and the fans that it was the right decision for the Club to re-sign me. I’m very proud to be here and I want to show my best performances. 
 
“I started very well here last season but the ankle injury was a big disappointment. I was out for about eight weeks and I had to go back to Germany and do all my treatment. But I got fit again quickly and now I’m feeling better than before. I’m feeling at 100 per cent.”
 
Donkor has been training with the Under-23s during the first week of pre-season at Finch Farm.
 
“Training so far has been very good - and tough!” he added. “After six weeks I hadn’t played football, but I was very happy to be back out on the pitch. David Unsworth is a great guy and I enjoy training with him. He has a good style of coaching.
 
“I love it here and English football is perfect for me. I’m very happy to be back.”
