Born in Liverpool, John Lundstram has been with Everton from a very early age and signed a full-time scholarship in July 2010.
A strong tackler with excellent passing ability, the youngster has been capped by England Under-17s, Under-19s and Under-20s.
In February 2013, Lundstram was sent on loan to Doncaster Rovers where he helped the Yorkshire side win the League One title in a dramatic fashion away at Brentford in the final game of the season.
He joined Yeovil on loan late in 2013 in a deal which was subsequently extended until the end of the 2013/14 campaign.
But that didn't last and he instead joined Leyton Orient, missing out on promotion to the Championship after a penalty shootout in the play-off final.
He subsequently joined Championship side Blackpool on loan in August 2014, making 17 appearances for the Seasiders before being recalled at the start of 2015.
