Hallam Hope is set to join Bury on a permanent deal following his recent loan spell.
The young striker has been with the Shakers on loan since November, making seven appearances but so far failing to score for David Flitcroft's side.
That hasn't stopped the manager making the deal permanent, with Hope set to join the League Two side on January 4. Last season he managed five goals in eight appearances for the Shakers.
The young striker joined Everton from Manchester City in 2005 aged just 11, going on to help the Under 18s win the national academy title in 2011. He has also featured for both the England Under-17 and Under-19 sides.
Should Everton have kept hold of Hallam Hope or will he be better served plying his trade in the lower leagues? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
