Everton have a talented crop of youngsters who have been an integral part of the youth setup. Their development continues as EFC look to provide them with the best playing opportunities and in order to provide that, loan deals are a fantastic opportunity to ensure their progress. Lewis Warrington and Stanley Mills are attracting interest.

Sean Dyche has been assessing the squad in the first pre-season he has had as EFC manager and making decisions over involvement of youngsters in the first team. The pre-season serves as a perfect opportunity for the manager to evaluate the young players and make a decision if they are ready to be a regular part of the first team dynamics or they need to go out on loan to play regular minutes and further hone their skills.

EFC has an exciting group of youngsters like Tom Cannon, Reece Welch, Lewis Dobbin, Tyler Onyango, Mills and Warrington. Most of them have been training with the Everton first team in the pre-season and have played some part in the friendlies against Stade Nyonnais, Wigan Athletic and Bolton Wanderers. EFC are slated to play Stoke City and Sporting, which will give Dyche more opportunities to scrutinize the players.

Some of the youngsters are already attracting interest as Cannon remains a top priority for Preston North End. The Championship side would be keen to take the Irishman on loan if he’s available. Now, Warrington is also wanted by another Championship club.

According to Liverpool ECHO, EFC are in talks with Plymouth Argyle over a loan deal for Warrington. The midfielder came on in the second half against Bolton in the pre-season friendly. The 20 year old has had two previous loan spells, one at Tranmere Rovers for the second half of the 2021-22 season and one at Fleetwood for the entirety of the 2022-23 season. He has a deal with EFC till 2024 so if the Toffees are to loan him out, they will look to extend his deal first and then send him on a loan assignment.

According to Vital Football, League One side Oxford United are also in talks with Everton for the loan of Mills. The U23 winger has looked promising for the U23 side and now looks ready to take the next step of playing regularly in one of the lower divisions. At Oxford, he’ll be a regular in the attack and will get minutes in abundance. He doesn’t look ready to take the leap to the Everton first team so a loan move in League One does sound the right plan for him.

The Toffees shouldn’t obstruct their loan moves as they are not in Dyche’s direct plans. In fact, a loan move for both of them will be beneficial at this point of time in their careers.
