It appears that Everton striker Fraser Hornby is enjoying being away from the hustle and bustle of Liverpool as he discusses his life at loan club KV Kortrijk.
Everton’s talented Scottish striker joined the Belgian side on a season-long loan deal in the summer. As reported by the Belgian club, Kortrijk also have the option to make the deal permanent should Hornby prove a success with De Kerels.
This week he has been speaking about his life at his new club, as reported on the club’s official Twitter account.
It appears that Hornby is enjoying the peaceful side of life in Belgium.
“Kortrijk is a very beautiful city. I love the tranquillity that prevails there.
“The fans are very passionate and hopefully, I can please them.”
There is no doubt that Kortrijk is not the metropolis Hornby has been used to on Merseyside. A population of 76,265 is some way behind Liverpool’s dense 466,400 recorded in the 2011 census. It is even quainter than the 225,146 populated Northampton where Hornby grew up prior to his 2014 Everton switch.
It seems that the Scotland under-21 international is enjoying that side of things as he looks to focus on his football and become a hit in Belgium.
Everton fans will no doubt hope Hornby can thrive in his new surroundings, even if it means he does end up leaving the club next summer.
