Midfielder Conor Grant has joined Crewe Alexandra on loan until January.
Grant has played once for David Unsworth’s Under-23s team this season – as a substitute in the 0-0 draw with West Ham United – but will now link up with the League Two Railwaymen.
The 22-year-old made 21 appearances and scored once – against Crewe – on loan at Doncaster Rovers last season, as the Yorkshire club won promotion into League One.
Grant had a six-month stint with Scottish Premiership side Motherwell in the second half of the 2014/15 campaign, and spent the majority of the following season at Doncaster.
He started 2016/17 with Championship team Ipswich Town before his return to Doncaster at the turn of the year.
The Fazakerley-born player was included in Everton’s matchday squad for the Europa League meeting with FC Krasnodar in December 2014.
Grant, who penned a two-year Goodison Park deal in summer 2016, joins a Crewe team unbeaten in their first four League Two games and sitting fourth in the division.
