Lukas Jutkiewicz wants to build on his preseason with the Everton senior squad.
"I can feel that being in and around the first team has made a difference to my game," former Swindon striker Jutkiewicz told evertonTV. "If you go and train with the first team and you do well it gives you that little bit more confidence to go and express yourself when you play in games for the Reserves.
"When you step into first-team football it's all about results. You need to know how to win even when things aren't going 100 per cent your way.
"I really enjoyed my time in America pre-season with the first team and I learnt a lot of things - and it's helped me. It was a really good experience and, hopefully, in the not too distant future I'll get another chance."
