Huddersfield keen as Everton ready to send Gibson away on-loan

Everton are ready to send Lewis Gibson away on-loan.

The Liverpool Echo says Everton hope to send Gibson on loan to a club who mirror the style of play Carlo Ancelotti wants to bring to Goodison Park.

Huddersfield Town have impressed with their vision for the player next season as new manager Carlos Corberan looks to implement a pressing style following his summer appointment.

Gibson, 20, spent the second-half of last season at Fleetwood Town and helped propel them into the League One play-offs after winning six and drawing three of his nine league appearances before the campaign was curtailed due to coronavirus.

Carlo Ancelotti and Everton are keen for the former Newcastle United centre-back, who signed a new deal in January, to continue gaining senior experience with the view to him challenging for a first-team place next summer.

Leeds United ran the rule over Gibson in their search for a centre-back to replace former loan star Ben White but Huddersfield - or a move to the Bundesliga - are currently his likely destinations.
