Everton fans have taken to Twitter to discuss Mason Holgate’s future at the club, after it was reported by the Liverpool Echo that West Brom were keen on signing the right-back on a permanent deal at the expiry of his loan stint at the Hawthorns.
Holgate made five Premier League appearances for the Toffees at the start of the season due to a number of injuries and a few suspensions, before losing his place in the team once the on-loan Kurt Zouma asserted himself at Goodison Park.
In this era of ‘big 6’ dominance, has finishing 7th become as good as winning a trophy? The Pl>ymaker FC squad have their say in the video below…
Everton have had somewhat of an issue at right-back this season, with Seamus Coleman and Jonjoe Kenny sharing the spot in the starting eleven – Kenny has made seven starts, whilst Coleman has 22 under his belt.
Holgate has impressed with three assists in nine appearances for Darren Moore’s Baggies since arriving on loan, so he could potentially solve the Toffees’ right-back issue.
Let’s see what the Everton fans are saying on Twitter about Holgate’s future…

Need to keep him

He’s looked handy at right back tbh, willing to get forward, be an ideal player to keep Coleman on his toes,

I’d keep him.Looked good at both centre half and right back.

Absolutely!! His loan was just to get him games surely?! I think he’s our long term CB.

Yes he looks great as a right back and can solve a problem freeing up funds for other positions

No. Not a prem player but let’s get some decent money for him instead of giving everyone away.

Have to keep him. Provides depth at CB and clearly can play RB if needed

He is the future!

Our best youth defender by a mile. Always rated him. Do NOT sell.
