Harry Charsley has joined Bolton Wanderers on loan until the end of the season.
It is a first move away from Goodison Park for the versatile Republic of Ireland international, 21, who last month made his first-team debut in Everton's Europa League game against Apollon Limassol in Cyprus.
Charsley, a Premier League 2 winner with the Blues' Under-23s last season, heads to the Macron Stadium with Phil Parkinson’s side 20th in the Championship table but just a point above the relegation zone.
He could make his debut, and first senior appearance in English football, away at Brentford on Saturday.
Charsley links up with Everton teammate Antonee Robinson, who has been on loan with the Trotters since August.
