Future of Everton excites Garbutt

Everton youngster Luke Garbutt is excited about the potential of the Toffees squad.


The England U21 international signed a contract extension with the club on Tuesday and will be hoping to push Leighton Baines for a place in the starting eleven.

Garbutt is also excited to see how some of the Goodison Park young guns like Romelu Lukaku, Ross Barkley and John Stones kick on in 2015/16.

"Last season was great for me in continuing my development, my personal highlight being the Europa League adventure as I gained a lot of experience in those games playing against top quality opposition," he told the club's official website.

"Everything we went through last season and the experience we gained as a group will only make us stronger as a team ahead of the new season.

"And with all the young players we've got such as Rom, Ross and Stonesy - all of them key players, too, the future of the club couldn't be more promising.

"If we can continue to build the team, then we can go on and achieve special things together, every one of us as players will have no doubts about that."
