Now that Bjarni Vidarsson has been called into the full Iceland International squad the question is will he ever make the Everton first team?
Vidarsson is now 19-years-old and has yet to make his Everton debut. The youngster has risen through the Everton youth ranks, impressed at reserve level and even had a decent short loan at Bournemouth but so far the bench is as close as he's got to playing for the first team.
Clearly he has potential and Moyes is very good at giving youngsters a chance but will we ever see Vidarsson in the first team?
Is Vidarsson the midfield player the team clearly needs or just a not-quite-good-enough youngster who will eventually end up in a lower division (like Hughes, Clarke, Chadwick, et al)?

So I would guess right now he is not the midfield player the team clearly needs, and more likely by the day to get a move to what would then probably be his proper level - the Championship or League One.
Then again, there is the Leon Osman case of making one’s full debut aged 23, so I wouldn’t rule him out entirely before Moyes has moved him on.
I suspect the Icelander’s attitude and training morale (because on his nationality) is spot on, which gives him a better chance of breaking through in his 20s, even though the raw talent might not be up there with the very best.
