Everton: Nathan Broadhead set for new contract

Everton: Nathan Broadhead set for new contract - Everton News

Everton winger Nathan Broadhead will sign a new two-year deal ‘soon’, according to The Athletic.

The lowdown

The 23-year-old made 18 Premier League 2 appearances last season, scoring 11 goals and providing three assists. Only six players in the division netted more.

Broadhead made his senior Premier League debut as a late substitute in the goalless draw at Brighton & Hove Albion in April.

Everton under-23 boss David Unsworth has labelled him a “terrific” player, adding that Broadhead was “one of the best players I’ve worked with at this level”.

The latest

The Athletic‘s Everton correspondent Patrick Boyland reported that Broadhead will soon commit his future to the Toffees – his contract had been due to expire this summer. Under-23 team-mates Ryan Astley, Kyle John and Joe Anderson have also been offered new deals.

Boyland also discussed Broadhead’s chances of breaking into the first team, saying that¬†midfield duo Tyler Onyango and Isaac Price and left-back Thierry Small are ahead of him of the queue for the moment.

The verdict

This is a slightly curious situation. Everton are clearly keen to keep Broadhead on their books, but there doesn’t seem to be an immediate prospect of first team football.

He’s 23 now, so it’s getting to the stage where he’s not really a ‘youngster’ anymore, and he might have to consider his future if he can’t force his way into the Toffees’ first team plans during the upcoming season.
