The 22-year-old midfielder has had two spells with Doncaster Rovers, and one each at Motherwell and Ipswich Town in the past, making over 60 first-team appearances so far but has yet to make his first-team bow for Everton.
The term of Grant's loan, erroneously reported as a season-long loan by the BBC, has been corrected above.

Prem. clubs are now becoming player rental facilities to lower league clubs - less about player development and more about business. The average age of these loanees grows ever higher. 22 years old, and the parent club are still undecided on the player's worth to the first team - all whilst continuing to buy-in other players?
Perhaps it could be said that lower league clubs are getting access to players they couldn't otherwise afford, or afford to commit to long term. How long before a similar model comes to teams in the Premier League?
Rent your players from Raiola. £150k per week player wages, same sum to Raiola. Three years rental contract therefore 23.4 mil. to Raiola, much cheaper than buying a £150k-per-week player...
The several cases so far of certain bodies having an "Interest" in a player are the early stages of this, I believe.

I this case with Conor it looks like a shop window job. Its tough at that age. Players are expected to peak earlier than they used to.

That sounds a good fit. I'll be watching out for their results and line ups.
I'm guessing it's gonna be a make or break season for a number of our loanees. Whether they have a future at Everton, or have to carve out a career elsewhere.
