Loanees Return For Under-21s

Youth loan rules allow Blues to play at Spurs on Monday.

Loanees Return For Under-21s

Everton Under-21s have called upon a host of loaned-out regulars for Monday's game against Tottenham Hotspur.

With skipper Tyias Browning, Matthew Pennington, Chris Long and Matthew Kennedy all currently at Football League clubs, they also remain eligible for the Blues.

The quartet travelled as part of the squad for the game at Bishops Stortford (7pm kick-off).

Manager Alan Stubbs explains the youth loan ruling that he hopes will benefit the individuals as well as his Under-21 side.

He told evertonfc.com: "The Premier League have restructured loan deals as a result of some players going out on loan and finding themselves not getting games.

"To combat that they have created youth loans that allow the parent clubs to bring the players back to also play for the Under-21s or Under-18s.

"This is the first time we've exercised the right to do that although some of the lads have been playing regularly.

"It's also a chance for us to assess them all, have a chat and see how they are enjoying it.

"Some of them will go back and extend their loans.

"I think it's a really good system because it gives them added confidence that if they go out on loan and aren't playing, we can always bring them back and give them minutes."

Everton Under-21s: Springthorpe, McLaughlin, Browning, Pennington, Garbutt, Ledson, Williams, Green, Long, Hope, C.Duffus.

Subs: Griffiths, Langton, Kennedy, Touray, McAleny.

Victor TayWe are really using the loan system well this season. Loaning out players to advance their learning curve seems a great idea.
