Two surprise inclusions in Everton's 25-man Premier League squad

New, comments

Besic & Broadhead have been named in Ancelotti's squad for the rest of the season

Everton FC

Following the conclusion of the January transfer window, teams have completed submissions of their 25-man squads for the remainder of the 2020-21 Premier League season.

Everton's squad list is mostly as expected with new signing Joshua King added to the roster, but along with him are two surprise names - Muhamed Besic and Nathan Broadhead have also been included.

Both players are out of contract at the end of the season, and while the youngster Broadhead has continued to prove himself useful to the Under-23 side, Besic has not broken into Carlo Ancelotti's squad and neither has he been able to attract any suitors for a transfer or even a loan deal.
