Everton youngster, Kyle John, could be set for a summer move away from Goodison Park this summer as he looks to continue his development.
The teenager defender has been impressing in the under-23’s for Everton in the last 12 months. And according to the Liverpool Echo, a number of EFL clubs are keen on taking him this summer.
The 19-year-old will be keen to build on the success he has had so far in the Everton second string. John, who has made 12 appearances in Premier League 2 this term, is reportedly being eyed by clubs in the Championship and League One.
John is clearly highly-thought of at Goodison, too. Indeed, under-23’s manager David Unsworth has lavished praise on the youngster before, describing him as a ‘class act’.
“He is a great boy and if he continues to progress as he has done since he’s been with us, he’s got a very bright future,” Unsworth also said of John.
There is no mention of particular clubs just yet. However, with Championship clubs having to curb spending this summer, a number of clubs could well be keen on a loan move for the promising youngster.

Everton has a healthy habit of producing excellent young players and it looks like Kyle John could be the latest one off the conveyor belt.
The likes of Tom Davies, Jonjo Kenny, and Dom Calvert-Lewin have all emerged in recent years. All three of those players have done well, so John will have high hopes of following in his footsteps.
However, game time at first-team level is so important. If he can secure a move to League One or the Championship, then it could well be the making of him.
