Garbutt welcomed back into Everton squad, fans react

Everton manager Sam Allardyce has confirmed that Luke Garbutt will return to the squad after initially being frozen out.

The 24-year-old has been part of the Merseyside squad since 2009 when he joined the club’s academy from Leeds United.

Under Ronald Koeman at the start of the season, Garbutt was not included in the squad, but current manager Sam Allardyce has decided to give the left-back a chance.

Garbutt has been impressing in the Under-23s squad and it looks as though he may be challenging for the first-team spot for the second half of the campaign.

Everton fans have been vocal in their desire for the club to sign a new left-back.

Leighton Baines is currently first choice, but Cuco Martina has been filling in during his teammate’s injury absence.

The Dutchman, who is predominantly right-footed, has been heavily criticised by supporters for his performances.

Allardyce’s admission that Garbutt will be brought back into the setup has been met with a mixed response from fans on Twitter.
