Everton have today announced that Luke Garbutt will spend the season on loan at Championship side Fulham.
To the surprise of all Evertonians the cultured left back signed a new 5 year contract on July 1st when it was looking highly likely he would leave the club.
When an impasse over a new contract ensued during last season and being overlooked by Brendan Galloway in final two games of the season, it looked like his days at Goodison were numbered.
Thankfully the club moved heaven and earth to secure his signature and he will now be given first team experience in the highly competitive Championship.
We all hope he gets regular playing time for the West London side and returns to push Leighton Baines for the left back berth.
Good luck Luke!
