Everton not only appointed a new manager on deadline day but they have been busy securing the signing of Donny Van de Beek from Manchester United on loan. Everton have confirmed the move. Van de Beek has commented on the move:
“I hope to bring my football qualities, my passing, and, of course, scoring goals. It is a big part of my game to score and give assists and I will try to do that again. And it is not only offensive, you have to defend as a midfielder and I can do that as well.”
Donny Van de Beek Moves to Everton on Loan
Manchester United completed the signing of Donny Van de Beek in August 2020. He came into the club with a lot of hype surrounding him after an incredibly successful stint with Ajax that included him scoring 40 goals and assisting 30 in his last three seasons for the team.
In his first season with Manchester United he made 36 appearances across all competitions but had very few starts in the Premier League. This has carried over to the current season with Van de Beek rarely being given a chance to influence games and showcase his full array of talents.
It became clear that the Dutch midfielder would be seeking a new challenge in this window. Clubs like Newcastle, Valencia and Crystal Palace were interested in the player, but it is Everton who have secured his services. It was first reported yesterday that Everton had secured the signing of Van de Beek but it has now been confirmed by the club as a loan deal.
New Manager Frank Lampard has a tough task ahead as the club are battling relegation but a player of Donny Van de Beek’s quality will go a long way to helping the club move up the table.
