Conor McAleny is convinced he can make it at Everton.

The homegrown graduate is returning to full fitness following an early season injury, and remains hopeful he can soon make a breakthrough.

"I know it takes time to progress," he told the Liverpool Echo.

"I want a run of games (for Alan Stubbs's U21s) and to get fully fit - then I'll see where I am after that.

"I think if I got on for the first team I'd have a good chance of scoring."
