Many Everton fans have been discussing the future of Ellis Simms as David Unsworth has said, according to the Liverpool Echo, that he will remain at the Merseyside club until at least the January transfer window.
The 19-year old has scored no fewer than 10 goals in 26 matches over all competitions for the Under 23’s, as per Transfermarkt, as some members of the Goodison Park faithful have questioned as to whether he should be given a chance by Carlo Ancelotti in the first team or be sent out on loan to gain some experience playing men’s football.
Should Everton keep Simms with the 1st team or send him out on loan?
One EFC supporter claimed that the Toffees ‘don’t want another Rooney scenario,’ who signed for Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson for a rather big transfer fee as a teenager, before going on to have a very successful career in the game.
Another Blue even described him as ‘the next DCL,’ who has scored a quite impressive five goals in three games in the Premier League in the 2020/21 term so far (via Transfermarkt).

This kid has a HUGE future. The club need to be very careful how they handle him. Don’t want another Rooney scenario on our hands.

Loan him to a championship club I’d say he’s too good for the u23s

Keeps scoring goals he will be pushing towards the first team squad

As much as it pains me to say we need to take a page out of Liverpool’s books- either he’s good enough for the first team or he’s loaned out. Look at the money they’ve made for the likes of Solanke and Ibe- not good enough for their first team so moved on for good money!

He has to, hopefully loan next season.
