Wikipedia Entry

Grant is a product of the Everton Academy, having been with the club since age 13, follwing in the footsteps of his uncle, Tony Grant. In July 2013, he signed his first professional contract at Everton  A talented, left-footed player with an eye for goal, he featured in several of the senior side's pre-season games ahead of the 2013-14 campaign. Grant remained part of the Under-21 side in 2013-14 but missed a significant chunk of the season after he sustained an injury to his back in November that sidelined him for four months..

Grant returned to action in April 2014 for the Under-21s' final six games of the campaign as he regained full fitness following a frustrating period on the sidelines.

His first involvement with the first team in a competitive fixture came on 11 December 2014, when he was named as an unused substitute against FC Krasnodar in the Europa League.

On 2 February 2015, Grant signed for Motherwell on a six-month loan, and on 14 February 2015 made a scoring debut, curling in a free-kick in a 3-2 away defeat against Ross County.

On 3 July 2015, he signed a new one-year contract at Everton, and continued his progression in the Under-21s as the new season developed. By the end of October, a decision had been made to send him out on loan, and Doncaster Rovers were the destination, where he scored a screamer on his debut against Colchester Utd. 

Grant, 21, impressed on loan at Doncaster last season and is known to have genuinely enjoyed his four-and-a-half month long stay at the Keepmoat Stadium. The young midfielder  impressed with some spectacular goals from outside the box and made 22 appearances before injury forced his early return to Goodison Park in March 2016.

In July 2016, he signed a new 2-year deal, after playing 45 minutes in Everton's first pre-season friendly against FK Jablonec, in Austria. He featured as a substitute for the Blues in  more pre-season games but straangely was not given his 39 shirt number in the published list, before joining Ipswich Town on a season-long loan as he ramps up his development to Championship level.

The Everton youngster would make 6 starts for the Trotters but things weren't going well and Joe Royle agreed to bring him back to Finch Farm in November, where he played for the U23s before securing another loan to Doncaster Rovers in early January.

That didn't turn out all that well either, with manager Darren Ferguson saying that Conor Grant was ‘disappointing’ during his second loan spell, despite playing almost every game as he helped them win promotion back into League One.

A new season and a new loan, this time with Crewe Alexander, whose manager David Artell said this in October:

“He is a good player and he knows he has to produce it, week-in & week-out.

"He is out of contract at Everton in the summer, and I don’t know what they will do with him, but Conor knows that he has to do everything he possibly can to stay in football."

"He is good technically but we know he would be coming from Everton," Artell said. "That is not to say that our players are not as technically good because they are.

“He does bring a different side of the game though because he has been out on loan at Doncaster and knows what it takes to win promotion. He has tasted that at a young age and that helps massively.

“He has that winning mentality and belief and that comes from being a Scouser. They have that in their culture and it is a terrific trait to have. I wish more players had it.
