Everton: Lewis Dobbin nearing Derby loan move

Everton: Lewis Dobbin nearing Derby loan move -Everton News

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

The 19-year-old made his Toffees first-team debut last season and signed a long-term deal with the Merseyside club in January.

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.

Dobbin came on as a substitute for Frank Lampard in Everton’s FA Cup win over Boreham Wood, thus far his only appearance under the 44-year-old.

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.

Dubbed a ‘talented winger’ by transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Everton will have big plans for the 19-year-old, who produced 14 goals and 11 assists in 36 appearances for the Toffees’ under-18s.

Everton fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

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.
