Morgan Feeney could be the natural leader Everton need in years to come

Everton have a potential future leader in the form of Morgan Feeney.

The centre-back position has been a problem at Everton for some time now. The ageing status of Phil Jagielka, the one-time Everton lynchpin and club captain, has seen the Toffees bring in plenty of fresh faces recently. Michael Keane arrived last summer whilst Yerry Mina and Kurt Zouma joined at the start of the campaign.

But when it comes to replacing Jagielka with a potential modern-day leader at the back, Everton might want to look at their under-23s.

Morgan Feeney is looking every bit like a potential star of the future.

Last season was certainly topsy-turvy for the Everton youngster. He made his Everton debut in November and performed well for the under-23s. Unfortunately, he then had to undergo double knee surgery in February to solve a long-standing issue.

Now, however, he is back and the 19-year-old is looking like a future Everton star.

 

The captain of the under-23s has helped his side to an excellent Premier League 2 season so far and is proving himself a natural leader on the pitch.

That is something Everton appear to be severely lacking at present without the presence of Jagielka.

Feeney, now fit and fighting, could one day fill that role in the Everton first-team. He is undoubtedly one to continue looking out for.
