Fraser Hornby has completed a move away from Everton on loan – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have reacted positively to the move.
The Toffees have confirmed on their official website that the 19-year-old has joined Belgian top-flight club KV Kortrijk on loan for the rest of the campaign.
He’s a physical centre-forward that has been developing in the youth ranks at Goodison Park in recent years and has now departed to experience regular first-team action.
The Scotland Under-21 international has made one senior appearance for Everton, which came in a Europa League fixture against Apollon Limsassol.
But the attacker has been unable to get into serious first-team contention under manager Marco Silva and will now look to prove himself elsewhere.
Hornby is a highly-rated striker that played an important role in helping Everton’s Under-23s side win the Premier League 2 title last season.
A selection of Everton supporters are delighted to see Hornby depart on loan and feel it’s a great decision for his development.
It looks like a path into the first-team is blocked by the likes of Moise Kean, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Cenk Tosun, so a spell in the top-flight of Belgium will help immensely if he plays.
Here are some Everton fans reacting to Hornby’s loan exit:
All the best @fraser_hornby 💙
