Everton defender Nkounkou happy with progress at Standard Liege

Everton defender Niels Nkounkou is happy with his progress on-loan with Standard Liege.

The 21-year-old left-back was loaned out by the Blues at the start of the season and has made nine league appearances since joining Liege.

The hope is that the French defender will return to Goodison Park an improved player, which he feels he is on his way to achieving.

“I'm taking everything I can take," he told DH.

"I'm learning an enormous amount to come back stronger in my club. It wasn't easy to change leagues. There was a need for time to adapt, which is now over."
