Everton youngster Lewis Dobbin is nearing a loan move to League One side Derby County, according to The Athletic’s Patrick Boyland.
The Lowdown: Dobbin’s future with Everton
As per The Athletic, there had previously been fears that the England under-19 international may leave Goodison Park, so insiders at the club were relieved when the youngster committed his future to the Blues earlier this year.
The Latest: Boyland’s update
Boyland has shared an update on the Toffees’ upcoming plans for Dobbin this season.
Taking to Twitter, the reliable journalist claimed: “Derby at the front of the queue for Everton’s Lewis Dobbin, with a loan move expected to be confirmed soon”.
Speaking about the youngster to The Athletic last month, Lampard said: “Lewis Dobbin is one where a loan probably will be the best thing for him.”
The Verdict: Good experience
With just five senior appearances to his name, a loan move to League One would be a brilliant experience for Dobbin, as it would allow him to adjust to the physicality of the men’s game.
Therefore, with Derby set to push for promotion this year following the disaster of last season, a loan switch to the Rams would appear to be a great move for Dobbin’s development.
