Town Talking to Everton About Garbutt's Future
Friday, 13th Dec 2019 11:34
Town boss Paul Lambert has revealed that the Blues are talking to Everton regarding on-loan left-back Luke Garbutt's future.
The 26-year-old has had a very impressive season so far and has scored five goals, the latest of which in Tuesday’s FA Cup defeat to Coventry.
Asked whether he would like to get something longer term sorted with the former England U16, U17, U18, U19, U20 and U21 international with his Goodison Park contract up in the summer, he said discussions are ongoing.
”I think [general manager of football operations] Lee [O’Neill] is talking to Everton already,” he said.
“I think he’s done great, he’s scored five I think from more or less left-back which is an incredible return, so I’m really happy with his contribution since he’s been here.”
Lambert admitted that other clubs may also be taking note of Garbutt’s performances for the Blues.
“They could do,” he said. “But I think Luke really enjoys it here. He’s playing in front of big crowds every week, but a lot will depend on Everton, a lot will depend on Luke.”

We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.

As if going to an FA Cup semi-final was not stressful enough, I had added stress. I travelled on a Supporters Club coach, on board many families, including my father and my wife
