Tom Cannon says he is ready to push for a place in Sean Dyche’s men’s senior squad - and cannot wait to experience the “buzz” of scoring in front of a full Goodison Park. [EFC]
“I want to come back for pre-season, impress the manager and hopefully show him what I can do, and then get myself in the squad. Scoring goals with the Under-21s is different from Men’s football. Now I’ve gone out to the Championship and scored, hopefully the manager has seen that.
It’s my aim to score in front of the crowd at Goodison. There’s nothing more that I want to do. I’ve gone out on loan and scored at Deepdale. But I know it would be a different buzz scoring at Goodison Park in front of 40,000.”
Meanwhile, it looks like England have approached Cannon to switch his allegiances from the Republic of Ireland to the Three Lions with the player eligible to appear for either side. [The Athletic (paywall)]
