Here are the Everton morning headlines for Thursday, August 6.
Bowler eyes loan move
Everton youngster Josh Bowler is hoping to secure another loan move away from Goodison Park next season.
The 21-year-old winger made 28 appearances for Hull City in the Championship in 2019/20.
But only five of those outings came after the middle of January, when Hull fell from the top half of the second tier to relegation.
Bowler, who was signed by the Blues from Queens Park Rangers in 2017, is unlikely to be part of Carlo Ancelotti’s first-team squad next term.
The forward is therefore hoping to get some more experience under his belt in the Championship in 2020/21.
Unsworth makes Nkounkou assessment
David Unsworth believes Niels Nkounkou has made a positive first impression following his move to Everton.
The 19-year-old joined the Blues on a free transfer from Marseille last month.
And the under-23s boss says the highly-rated teenage left-back has trained well in recent days.
Unsworth told evertonfc.com : “He looks a really good prospect.
“He has worked very, very hard in these first few days. There are obviously a lot of things to work on but he looks a great athlete.
“I’m looking forward to honing in on his position – it’s a position I know very well – and trying to help him with the tactical understanding and requirements of what’s needed at the highest level.
“I think that’s something we do very well here – showing our young players what they need to be an Everton player.”
Everton clause now inactive
Everton are set to miss out on a sell-on fee if Antonee Robinson is sold by Wigan Athletic this summer.
The Latics were relegated to League One in cruel circumstances after being deducted 12 points for entering administration.
A firesale is now expected to take place and former Everton youngster Robinson could be on the move.
The Blues inserted a clause in the deal that took him to Wigan last summer that guaranteed the club 20% of a future sale.
But Wigan’s relegation has triggered a separate clause in his deal that will allow Robinson to leave for £1.5million this summer.
The ECHO understands that the 20% sell-on clause would only come into effect if Wigan sold him for more than the £2m they paid Everton in 2019.
