Luke Garbutt is one of those tantalizing youth players for Everton. Fans have heard about his ability for several years now, but Leighton Baines remains an obstacle to the young fullback. This year Everton set the young left back on loan to Fulham in the Championship for a full season. We had a chance to talk with Andrew from SB Nation's Fulham site, Cottagers Confidential. He answered a few questions for us about Garbutt to give us a better idea of when we might see Garbutt with the first team. You can also take a look at their season review of Garbutt here.

RBM: At Everton we think of Garbutt as a left back, is that where he played for Fulham and do you think he sticks there?
RBM: I know Garbutt had an ankle injury that limited him this year, how did that affect his play when he returned.
