It's the second loan spell for the 19-year-old from Everton's U21 side – he had a similar term at Stockport County earlier this season.

These loans will do him good. Harry Kane had six loan periods before the penny dropped but he was also getting quality experience with the England U21s.
Built for the job and still very young, Calum will always attract clubs with goal scoring problems. Will probably never replace Lukaku but with18 months left of his contract, hard work and the right attitude might bring him rich rewards. We wish him well.

With us getting to the quarterfinals of the League Cup, and more and more senior players back from injury, there is even less chance of young players being given a chance. Unless we get a couple of very soft draws in the opening rounds of the FA Cup, I can't see a youth player surfacing until the dead rubber games in May.
It's interesting that our two best young players in the last few seasons, Stones and Galloway, have come from playing first team football with lower league clubs. George Green had an attitude problem and Calum Dyson already drives a merc at 19... (Who was it that got caught in a car with a bag of drugs, was it Green or someone else?)

Read the Chris Long interview where he says he had to leave because even after starring in preseason and excelling in training he could not get near the first team when Lukaku was unfit and injured.
Perhaps none of them are good enough but it seems the message to young players is that you may get a shot if injury strikes but even if you do well the senior pro will be back in when fit.... not ideal.

The kids here don't stand a chance yet Martinez is lauded as a coach who brings them through. Hmm.
