Now 19, Duffus is in rehabilitation for a knee injury that prematurely ended his 2014-15 season but he revealed to evertontv just how close he came to making his senior bow in the Europa League last season against Young Boys in Bern before John Stones's dismissal forced a rethink by Roberto Martinez.
"I was just made up to be there to be honest," he said. "Hopefully I can pick up where I left off when I get back fit and be challenging to get in that first team again."
Duffus is expected to be fit again by September.

It's always such a shame when an injury holds up the development of a young player. Hopefully he uses the time to focus his mind rather than lose it.
Regards to Mrs Duffus who I know has commented on TW before!
