Nathan Broadhead 55

After catching the eyes of Blues scouts when he was playing for Wrexham and his home club, Bangor, Nathan Broadhead joined the Blues’ academy as a 10-year-old and progressed through the ranks, enjoying an outstanding campaign for the U18s in 2015-16 by being named Player of the Season, finishing top goalscorer, and helping fire the young Blues to the Dallas Cup.

The Wales youth international, who can play as a striker or winger, broke through into David Unsworth’s title-winning Under-23s side in 2017. On the back of this evident progress, he was given a new 3-year contract in May 2017 that would run through 2020. 

"I've been an Evertonian all of my life and it feels like the perfect place to be for me," he said. "I'm just glad it's all done and I'm looking forward to next season now."

Nathan would travel with the first-team squad to Cyprus for the dead rubber group game in the Europa League against Apollon Limassol, where he would come off the bench in the 82nd minute to make his senior debut.

That was just a taster, though, and it was back to running the hard yards and building the groundwork that would lead Unsworth to say, after he scored two goals at Anfield in March 2019 to beat Liverpool in Premier League 2:

"It's up to him what the next step is. If he continues to produce performances like that then everyone will want to take him on loan next season. So maybe a loan is the next step, maybe training with the first-team – but that's up to the manager – but he has certainly given himself a platform."

"We've had to wait for Nathan, physically, but now you can see he's the guy who can run all day, who's quick, his size doesn't deter him, he's brave and he gets on the ball.  He has no fear and technically he's outstanding and now he's adding goals to his game. I always asked for that consistency level of performance and if you are going to kick on and go into our first-team then you have to add goals."

Unsworth added: "He's a top young player and one of the best players I've worked with at this level. I hope he goes on and has a wonderful career because his ability certainly deserves that."

Broadhead was recognised for his impressive form for the Premier League 2 Champions with selection for Wales's summer training camp and a new contract in August 2019 immediately prior to his first loan assignment, a season-long transfer to Burton Albion in League One. After a bright start, with a winning brace away at Gillingham in his second game,  injuries would increasingly limit Broadhead’s chances at Burton.

In December and January, he made just two cameo appearances in 14 games and ended up with relatively modest stats when the season was curtailed in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with health restrictions preventing him from returning to Finch Farm for training as the lockdown eased. With one year remaining on his Everton contract, the club let it be known that they would consider offers for him.
