Everton youngster Tyler Onyango already trains regularly with the first-team, but The Transfer Tavern‘s EFL spy thinks the teenager could benefit from from a loan deal with Portsmouth.
Onyango, who is highly rated by assistant manager Duncan Ferguson, made his senior Toffees debut in an FA Cup tie with Sheffield Wednesday in January, but is likely to need a loan move to the EFL to get a regular taste for men’s football.
Will Portsmouth get promoted next season?
The 6 ft 5 teenager was involved several times with Carlo Ancelotti’s first-team, although he is yet to make his Premier League debut having been an unused substitute on eight occasions.
And the EFL insider exclusively told The Transfer Tavern that the young midfielder is already good enough to flourish at League One level when asked whether he would be a good fit at Portsmouth:
“Tyler Onyango of Everton is an interesting one that needs men’s football to get him near the Everton first team, where he is potentially close to being soon.
“He’s a big midfielder but has the ball retention of a good midfielder at League One level for Portsmouth.”
Danny Cowley teams historically like to play on the front foot with plenty of possession. So, with the EFL spy revealing that the teenager’s ball retention is one of his strengths, this would make for a good match.
