DONE DEAL: Everton send Jarrad Branthwaite to Blackburn Rovers

Everton have loaned defender Jarrad Branthwaite to Championship side Blackburn Rovers in a deal until the end of the season.

The 18-year-old has made five senior appearances for Carlo Ancelotti's Toffees since joining from hometown club Carlisle United 12 months ago.

He had played 14 first-team games for the Cumbrians before the switch.

"He's got a lot of attributes that will help our team," boss Tony Mowbray told BBC Radio Lancashire.

"I'm sure Carlo Ancelotti thinks he's going to be around their first-team squad next year on a pretty regular basis"

Branthwaite has been called up to the England Under-19 side and is available for Blackburn's game against Stoke at the weekend.
