Three Everton players who should force a January loan exit

Everton’s tight-knit squad means that several fringe players could be seeking exits this January.

When the transfer window reopens in the new year, there will be some players looking for a permanent departure, while others will want to gain experience out on loan.

Here are three players who should ask Marco Silva for a loan move this January.

After playing more than 10 games last season, many Everton fans expected Baningime to play a bigger role this season.

But the 20-year-old has not featured once under Silva.

The Congolese midfielder still has a bright future but might need a loan spell to get the best out of his talent.

Since Silva has taken over, Holgate has slipped down the pecking order at Everton.

The 22-year-old can play at centre-back or right-back but Silva has other preferred options.

With just six appearances to his name this season, the last of which was in September, the England under-21 defender could do with a January loan.

Hornby is one of Everton’s most talented youngsters but he needs to be tested at senior level.

The Scotland under-21 striker is comfortable at youth level football and must prove himself at first-team standard.

The 19-year-old will not be short of suitors in the January window.
