Another of Everton's youngsters is being tempted to join a Bundesliga club to further his career in Germany.
Joe Williams could follow Jonjoe Kenny, with the Liverpool Echo reporting that a number of unnamed clubs in the Bundesliga and the Championship have made offers to Everton for him. Williams spent last season out on loan with Bolton Wanderers.
Williams represents another test case for Everton's youth policy in terms of team building, with the young player's path into the senior side's midfield further blocked by the signing of André Gomes.
Everton have apparently resisted previous offers for Williams from Barnsley and Bristol City in the past.

A season-long loan in Germany would be a good option because, if he does well, his value will rise. Selling now would probably see us get a symbolic fee.

We waste a lot more on a lot less imo, just look at Sandro and Miralas.

I think the Bundesliga would be a great idea. Joe and Jonjoe can work on their German language skills.

I know he was frustrating but a quick google confirms he racked up 30 odd goals and almost as many assists in 150 Premier League games for an outlay of £6 million and on 45k a week (initially). Don't think he's quite in Sandro's "waste-of-money" league.

Joe Williams is a miniature beast in the middle of the park but I doubt he could get game time ahead of Davies who is a more rounded player.
He'll do well though, and Germany is a great place to develop, especially with clubs that put their faith in young potential.

I liked Miralas a while ago, but hes gone lazy/stale whatever you want to call him.
Was more making an example of players who we pay yet they don't actually contribute anything.
I understand Miralas once did, but that was almost 3 years ago, the man is now a burden to the club as are around 15 others.
If were splitting hairs I'm sure I could have used another name but imo Miralas, Besic, McCarthy, Martina, Steklenburg, all offer nothing as they don't ever kick a ball for the first team (some different reasons than others), yet we pay them in excess of a million pounds a month, that for me is a waste.
Lads like Joe Williams who are young and can be loaned out with all there wagers covered are not the same drain on the club.
