In form Everton U23s and Scottish U21s striker Fraser Hornby says he’s content to move away from the club but only on a temporary basis, possibly during the upcoming January transfer window. His priority is to break into the Toffee’s senior side, however he recently told Capital City Press that he is happy to go on loan.
“Hopefully I can get a few appearances for the first team at Everton, if not then I’ll be happy to go out on loan somewhere.”
His comments came after his hat trick against Andorra in a UEFA U21 Euro 2019 Qualifier and before his most recent outing with the U21s Scottish National Team against the Netherlands U21s in which he scored two goals thereby bringing his tally to five in only a week.
Though Hornby’s recent quality has been getting some well deserved time in the spotlight he remains quiet in and around the club when it comes to his playing future.
“I’ve not really had a chat with anyone about my future at Everton, I’ve kept my head down and I’m taking each day as it comes and working hard.”
The youngster’s contract isn't set to expire until 2021 and I don’t expect him to break into the senior team for perhaps a few more years but that doesn’t mean he won’t. This fan has no problem with Hornby heading out a loan spell if only to continue building his skills as a striker.
Hornby will next lace up his boots for Everton U23s on the 18th of September against Derby County and in that game we shall see if he can continue the form displayed for his country over the past week.
