Norwich City are looking at bringing in playmaker Antony Evans on loan from Premier League side Everton, according to The Sun.

The playmaker has been putting in some impressive performances for Everton’s Under-23 side, managed by former Toffees caretaker manager David Unsworth.

Everton are reportedly looking at sending the midfielder out on loan for the second half of the season to get some senior game time, and The Canaries are one of the clubs potentially looking to agree a loan deal with the Premier League side which would see Evans join Daniel Farke’s men for the rest of the season.

Youngster Evans had an underwhelming spell on loan with League Two side Morecambe in the second half of the 2016/17 campaign. He scored two goals and picked up two assists in 14 games for The Shrimps.

David Unsworth – manager of Everton’s youngsters – was full of praise for Evans back in March this year. He told the Liverpool Echo:

“He’s progressing really nicely and he’s certainly been one of our best players, if not the best player and that warrants him getting the captain’s armband,” Unsworth told the Echo.

“We’re always looking for that, looking a player to burst onto the 23s scene who can come from under-18 level.

“Antony has had a little taste on loan and then we’re looking for that consistency in performance. We had a chat just after I came back to the 23s and I told him I never knew what I was going to get out of him, some games it would be a nine out of 10 and others it would be a four or a five and that’s development football and young players.

“But what he’s doing now is putting consistent performances together of eights and nines and his quality is without a doubt.”
