Everton Loan Summary: February Report
We are coming to the end of the trading season, but how Evertondo loan stars get along?
Below, we take a look at who’s shining and who seems to be definitely stepping out of Goodison Park.
So let’s see how Everton’s loaned contingent played out in February.
Moise Kean – PSG
After appearing to be on the verge of withdrawing from Mauricio Pochettino’s plans at PSG, Moise Kean has had a big February.
He started six of the club’s seven games during the month (mostly on the right wing) and scored four goals.
Most notably, Kean scored a header in the Parisian’s eye-catching 4-1 at Camp Nou against Ronald Koeman’s Barcelona.
While not in a blue shirt, this is all good news for Everton as the 21-year-old’s value only increases.
There was bad news for Kean before March, however, as he tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss future games. We wish him a quick recovery !
Appearances: 23 (5)
Nathan Markelo – Twente
We still have to start a match for Twente. He made a few appearances on the bench at right-back in February, bringing his total minutes played for the season to a paltry 102 minutes.
Appearances: 0 (7)
Dennis Adeniran – Wycombe Wanderers
Fallen out of favor with Wycombe. Appeared once in February and only reached the bench twice.
Appearances: 12 (2)
Lewis Gibson – Lecture
I had some playing time in February, but again, I didn’t make the biggest impression in Reading.
He played 87 minutes left-back in a 2-1 loss to Millwall, made a narrow appearance from the bench in his privileged center-back position against Bristol City.
He then came into play at half-time against Middlesbrough with his side down 2-0. The match ended with the same score.
Unfortunately, as his playing time begins to increase, he injured his knee which will rule him out for a few weeks.
Appearances: 4 (3)
Callum Connolly – Fleetwood Town
A ubiquitous for Fleetwood and has even been the team captain on several occasions.
The Cod Army has been battling for form lately, but Connolly has been a rare positive. However, his contract at Everton expires this summer and at 23 it will surely be time for him to find a permanent home.
Appearances: 27 (0)
Was part of Southampton’s long injured list, missing all of February with a hamstring problem.
Appearances: 16 (0)
Jarrad Branthwaite – Blackburn Rovers
Played every minute in February, but Blackburn had a month to forget as they only collected one point in six games.
Branthwaite wasn’t entirely faultless during this spell either, looking a bit suspicious with some of his positioning in the 3-2 loss at Watford and was left on the bench for his first game in March.
There is definitely a player there, but at only 18 he is still incredibly young for a center-back and needs to continue to learn at that level.
Appearances: 9 (0)
Matthew Pennington – Town of Shrewsbury
Following an injury shortly after arriving, Pennington made his second appearance for Shrewsbury as he played the full 90 minutes at right-back in a 2-1 loss to the Bristol Rovers.
Another player whose contract expires in the summer.
Appearances: 2 (0)
Ellis Simms – Blackpool
One of the few players who seems to have a really useful loan period.
Although he scored a brace on his league debut in late January, February was a goalless month for Simms (although he did score against Wimbledon at week-end). That said, he provided two assists in their 3-0 win over Charlton.
He was in and out of the starting lineup, but Blackpool manager said he is showing good signs of progress. Simms shared the opinion between Blackpool fans, however, many of whom claim he really needs to work on his first touch..
Appearances: 4 (2)
Yannick Bolasie – Middlesbrough
Played 81 minutes on the left wing in a 4-1 loss to Brentford, but then missed the rest of Middlesbrough’s action in February with a hamstring injury.
Appearances: 2 (0)
Beni Baningime – Derby County
Came within 3 minutes of Derby’s 3-0 loss to Rotherham after completing his move to Pride Park, but did not appear for the Rams for the remainder of the month, as he alternated between the bench and missing a team quite place.
deputy director of Derby, Liam Rosenoir, alluded to fitness issues limiting his playing time, stating: “Beni hasn’t played first-team football for a while, but what he has been doing, and because we train so hard, his level of fitness and sharpness has exploded since it’s here.
“He pushes, he really pushes. He’s been exceptional in training, he pushes the other players in the midfield and I’m sure sooner rather than later you might see him come off the bench or even start a game. He is an integral part of our team, like all members. “
Appearances: 0 (1)
Cenk Tosun – Besiktas
28 league minutes played, two goals!
Unfortunately, a knee problem severely limited Tosun’s playing time, with his only other appearance coming in the Turkish Cup.
Appearances: 1 (1)
Anthony Gordon – Preston North End
The fans seem to like it, but it still looks like Anthony Gordon has some work to do to convince Preston’s boss Alex Neil.
The 20-year-old winger made three starts and three appearances as a substitute in February, resulting in no goals or assists – although he won a penalty shortly after coming into play. game against Cardiff and scored a man of the match against QPR.
He also wrote a column about his career so far for the Lancashire Post.
Must start to really take hold on games to make it unchallengeable.
Appearances: 3 (3)
