It was another tough week for Everton’s out-on-loan players, but do any of these lads have a future at the club?

The Youngsters

Henry Onyekuru - Galatasaray

Didn’t appear in Galatasaray’s 3-1 win over Kayserispor as he was serving a one-match suspension for yellow card accumulation.

Nikola Vlasic – CSKA Moscow

Another Moscow derby and another assist as CSKA drew 1-1 with Lokomotiv. Continues to shine in Russia. Will be interesting to see whether Silva finds a place for him at Goodison next season.

Antonee Robinson – Wigan Athletic

Wigan guaranteed their safety over the Easter weekend with a shock 2-1 win over Leeds, before beating Preston 2-0. Robinson again impressed in both games and could end up at Goodison next season if Baines’ contract isn’t renewed.

Beni Baningime – Wigan Athletic

Nowhere to be seen.

Callum Connolly – Bolton Wanderers

While Wigan secured their safety, Bolton were relegated from the Championship to add to the club’s woes following back-to-back defeats to Aston Villa and Blackburn. Connolly did play in both games though, showing his January switch from Wigan was a shrewd move for his game time.

Joe Williams – Bolton Wanderers

Also played two full games as Bolton were relegated, as Williams achieved the unfortunate record of consecutive seasons after also being relegated with Barnsley last season. Both relegations were harsh on the 22-year-old though, who proved to be one of Bolton’s best performers.

Matthew Pennington – Ipswich Town

Season ended early with an ankle injury.

Kieran Dowell – Sheffield United

Minutes are proving very hard to come by with Sheffield United pushing for promotion, with Dowell just getting a four-minute cameo over two games during the long weekend.

Mason Holgate – West Bromwich Albion

Two more starts for Holgate as he continues to impress at play-off certainties West Brom, playing at right-wing back in both their 3-2 win over Hull, before being substituted on 61 minutes in their goalless draw with Reading.

Antony Evans – Blackpool

Got a rare start and played 79 minutes in a goalless draw with Scunthorpe on Good Friday before returning to the bench on Easter Monday.

Shayne Lavery - Falkirk

Falkirk dropped to the bottom of the Scottish Championship in a 2-0 defeat to Greenock Morton, but Shayne Lavery didn’t get off the bench once again.

Joe Hilton – Marine

19-year-old is still doing well in non-league football, earning a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw on Good Friday, before Marine lost 2-0 to Bamber Bridge on Monday.

The Deadwood

Ashley WilliamsStoke City

Two rare starts for Williams, playing in the 1-0 defeat to Boro, before scoring in a 2-2 draw with Norwich. Everton career over anyway.

Cuco Martina - Feyenoord

Returned from injury to start in Feyenoord’s 2-1 win over AZ, but had to go off on 59 minutes with another injury.

Luke Garbutt – Oxford United

Finally proving his worth at Oxford, providing an assist from a corner before scoring an excellent free kick against Charlton in a 2-1 win. Kept his place for Monday’s 3-2 win over Shrewsbury too.

Shani Tarashaj - Grasshopper


Kevin Mirallas - Fiorentina

Started for Fiorentina in their 2-1 defeat to Juventus but was replaced on 80 minutes. Continues to get decent game time despite a limited return in terms of goals and assists.

Mo Besic - Middlesbrough

Started Boro’s 1-0 win over Stoke and 3-0 defeat to Forest, but was replaced in both on 55 and 45 minutes respectively.

Yannick Bolasie - Anderlecht

Started Anderlecht’s goalless draw with Gent.

Sandro Ramirez – Real Sociedad

Got just a three minute run out in a 2-1 defeat to Barca. Still no goals for Sociedad.

Oumar Niasse – Cardiff City

Also no goals yet for Cardiff as he played 67 minutes in their 2-0 defeat.
