The promising academy graduate scored 10 goals over the second half of the 2020-21 season with the Seasiders, although he missed last Saturday's League One play-off final through injury.
He currently has a year left on his existing Everton contract but the Liverpool Echo report that the club are keen to secure him on a longer deal and send him out on loan again next season to gain more first-team experience.

Blackpool will be one of the favourites to go down so a realistic goal tally of 12 - 15 I think is reasonable given that he will start some matches and come off the bench in others.

He took a little time to adjust to the more competitive style of Football played at Division 2 level, although he bagged a brace on his first start I believe. Once he had adjusted his focus there was no stopping him, but I did feel a bit gutted for him that on the eve of the Final he pulled up in Training and missed all the glory that HE had won for his loan side!

How dare you disrupt the Ancelotti posts with some positivity!!
I'll be honest, not seen much of him so I take others' words for it like yourself.
What's interesting is that the club seems to have a plan for him.
Maybe that bottom up restructuring is starting whilst we continue to try and unravel the mess at the top and fix the roof at the same time.

Holgate and Godfrey marshalling the back
Davies in the holding midfielder role
Gordon, DCL and Simms up front
Richarlison, Kean and James sold to balance the books!!!!

We'll need Pickford to have a little jar of smelling salts in his goal he can pass to Holgate periodically to make sure he's awake and aware of the world around him.

Yes another Blackpool loan or similar league 1 team would be great for his development.
Game time is crucial.

Every time I have seen him he has been outstanding and near runs the show each time. Its also good to see him winning a 2-year contract with Blackpool with option for a 3rd year. I can see him doing very well there and this may hinder Ellis having the opportunity to go back there now.
