Green and Junior go out on loan

by | 26/03/2015  Comments (12)  jump

Everton academy players, George Green and Francisco Junior have been sent out on loan for the rest of the season. Green joins Tranmere Rovers while Junior will play for Port Vale.

Green, 19, will be in line for his Rovers debut in Saturday afternoon's League Two clash at home to AFC Wimbledon.

Junior, who has spent time in Norway with Stromsgodset and Holland with Vitesse Arnhem, heads to League One Vale who face Leyton Orient this weekend.

The talented Green joined the Blues from Bradford City aged 15 and has been a regular in David Unsworth's under-21s Blues side recently.

Pity about Junior, there were high hopes for him

Shouldn't he be Francisco Senior by now? Had him long enough...

Can't beat competitive experience. Didn't do Harry Kane any harm. It's what Browning and Garbutt need. Get them out there where the going's tough.

I agree, Harold. With Gethin Jones joining Plymouth to help with their faltering promotion push and Green trying to help Tranmere stay in the Football League, it means they will both be playing in pressurised, important games for the respective clubs and their supporters. Let's hope they both do well enough to stay in the starting XIs, unlike some of our loanees.

They could find themselves in direct opposition on the penultimate weekend of the season when the two clubs meet at Plymouth.

Junior is never going to make it, he's been here ages. As for Green, and any others who are supposed to be any good, get them back in the summer and hopefully loan them out somewhere decent for a change, for a whole season, not just a month here month there. Got to be Championship at least, or we learn nothing.

How do you know this, Dan? Didn't people say the same about Leon Osman a few years ago. Maybe a late developer like Leon.

Osman wasn't late, he was about 22 when he started getting games for Everton, and it was after spending a decent amount of time at Derby, not Port Vale or Tranmere. For me, when you see players going to clubs like that, it is often because that is their level.

If Green has half the technical ability that the club say, then there is no point him getting kicked lumps out of for too long. The Championship is a decent mix. Couple of months at Tranmere, then find him a decent level.

I just find most of Everton's loan outs completely pointless.

Dan, he played for Carlisle in the old 3rd Division for approx 15/20 games. Always struggled to establish himself until around 25/26 years lf age. Played for Derby when they were struggling to stay in Division 1.

Junior has plenty of time to have a good career with us.... all he needs is a manager who will give him the opportunity he needs. Sadly our gaffer has no balls to offer him the chance.

Dan, I think a lot depends on the character and determination of the player but you do have a point. Watching Lundstram trying to inter-change passes with lads who couldn't give him the ball back was pretty painful. It certainly didn't do him any favours but we managed to pull him out and move him up a notch. Now it's up to him.

OssieÂ’s first loan was a season long one at Carlisle, at the level Tranmere etc are at, not at Derby. He went there after breaking his leg at Everton, and it certainly did not arrest his development. He then moved on to derby where, like at Carlisle, he was a huge success.

Isn't Green in the "wonder kid" category? Yet he hasn't made his debut at 19... whereas Vaughan and Baxter did so at 16.

Green was out for a bit recently with a back injury wasn't he. I'm not sure carrying Tranmere will help that.
