Scotland U21 coach Gemmill hails Everton prospect Hornby: Loan move next

Scotland U21 coach Scot Gemmill is full of praise for Everton striker Fraser Hornby.

Gemmill was a former team-mate of current Everton coach Duncan Ferguson, who is now mentor to the young Blues centre-forward.

And after Hornby, 19, hammered a hat-trick against Andorra in a Euro 2019 qualifier at Tynecastle last night, Gemmill said: “I'm delighted for Fraser. You can see a young player starting to emerge and he's developing all the time. He had a good tournament in Toulon in the summer and he's really benefited from playing against those sort of teams.

“He's got that physicality which is important but Fraser is not just about that. It's about intelligence, a willingness to do the work and the talent as well. In football today you need the full package but he is definitely on schedule.

“I'm sure clubs are queuing up to take him on loan now."
