​Everton youngster Sean McAllister targets senior breakthrough

Everton youngster Sean McAllister is spying a spot in Frank Lampard's first-team.

The Northern Irish midfielder wants to join compatriot Isaac Price in stepping up to the senior squad this upcoming season.

He told evertonfc.com: "I want to reach the highest level I can with this club. I enjoy coming in every single day and I just love it here.

"One of my best mates is Isaac Price – we're in the same Northern Ireland youth team – and it's amazing to see him up with the First Team and being part of matchday squads. It shows that pathway is there.

"I loved the place straight away, ever since I first came over on trial. Everybody around the club is just so friendly and my family felt exactly the same.

"The lads in the squad made me feel as if I had been here for years. I fitted in instantly. My grandad actually came over recently and he loved every minute of it, too. Everton is just full of good people.

"I feel really comfortable here. I live in digs with Dylan Graham, a goalkeeper who is also from Northern Ireland, and Charlie Whitaker. It's a good group and we got on very well."
