Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite: I'm learning from Blackburn loan

Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite is happy with his loan at Blackburn Rovers.

He has already been embroiled in an row with veteran Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock after a challenge on Dael Fry but appreciates it's all part of his learning curve.

He told the Lancashire Telegraph: “Coming out on loan is about helping my learning.

“The incident at Middlesbrough helped massively, the defeat at QPR and the goal, looking at bits of my game that I can work on.

“Going out on loan is a little bit of a risk for a young player but it's one that you've got to take to develop and improve.

“It's been unbelievable, everyone here has been very welcoming, the players, the staff, and the game-time I've got is everything I could have asked for. I'm enjoying every moment of it."
