Everton can recall Joao Virginia from Reading

Everton could recall goalkeeper Joao Virginia from his loan with Reading in January.

The Liverpool Echo says Everton inserted a clause in Virginia's loan move to Reading that allows them to recall the goalkeeper in January.

The 20-year-old has made only three appearances for the Championship side since joining on a season-long deal in July.

The Blues can only trigger it in a defined period and would not have the entire month in which to act.

Virginia was one of the stand-out players for Everton last season as the under-23s won the Premier League 2 trophy and Premier League Cup.
