Everton signed Bowler from QPR back in July 2017 for an initial fee of around £1.5M in a deal presumably sanctioned by Ronald Koeman. If he ever makes progresses with Everton, that could increase to as much as £4.25M but so far, he has only played Under-23s football before last season's loan in the Championship.
Bowler made 31 appearances across all competitions for Hull, scoring just one goal and providing one assist amongst his notable efforts as they endured a fateful campaign that saw the club finish bottom and get relegated to League One after a dreadful run of form.
It's hard to picture him breaking into Carlo Ancelotti's set-up after a struggling campaign in the Championship, so it really could be his last chance to make a claim for future recognition at the club. He has just 12 months remaining on his current deal, and he is probably filed alongside Luke Garbutt in the Italian man's memory.
The Echo has reported that Josh Bowler wants another loan move away from Goodison Park next season. The 21-year-old see little hope of being included in Everton's senior squad, where he has never even been considered since joining the club in 2017 and for another chance next season to try impress out on loan.
It is understood that he wants the opportunity to return to a club in the Championship for the upcoming campaign.

At the time of his injury, Hull were 12th and looking safe. They sold Bowen to West Ham thinking the money would be good, we are not going to be promoted, we are not going to get relegated. Problem was in the last 18 games they only picked up 6 points and finished 4 points from safety.
Probably correct that he is not good enough for a career in the Premier League, but perhaps unfair to label him alongside Garbutt. At least he should not have a 5-year contract on offer this time next year in the hope that paying him £5m over the next 5 years will allow us to sell him for £750k at some point.

Amusing to see the Finch Farm Fact Finders have been wearing their balaclavas back to front again.
