Thompson, who came to Everton after playing for Blackpool and then Manchester United, has not been a first-choice at U18 level this season with only 5 starts and is being given the opportunity to find another club for his future development.
Reports in the northeast suggested that Steve Bruce and his staff were keen to run the rule over Thompson as they look to inject fresh blood into their club at the development level.

He started off last season well at u18 and was our regular centre back, usually partnered with Reece Welch. Although he played initially this season, he hasnt been picked lately. Often these decisions are made early ( not to give him a pro contract) so that may have impacted selection.
We have two 2nd year centre backs Seb Kristensen and Harry Hagan who were given pro contracts last year, although from what Ive seen neither are particularly better than Thompson.
Our two 1st year centre backs, Reece Welch and Eli Campbell , who is still 16, are I would say the better prospects of our centre backs. Good luck to Dylan Thompson, hope he finds another club.

Almost funny if they hadn't totaly outplayed and beat us.
So to rectify, I presume he passes the ball forward to much.
