Brendan Galloway will get his Everton debut Saturday afternoon after manager Roberto Martinez added the young England international to his starting 11 against West Ham United.

The 19-year-old will start at left back in place of the injured Leighton Baines, who underwent ankle surgery this past week. Galloway starts over Luke Garbutt, who is on the bench and will now surely be on his way out at season's end.

Galloway was born in Zimbabwe and spent six years there until relocating to England. His youth career was spent at MK Dons, and he came to Everton in August of last year. He signed a five year contract with the Toffees.

What do you think of Galloway's inclusion in the squad? And Martinez's decision to keep Garbutt on the bench?
