John Lundstram goes to Doncaster for a month
The 19-year old has progressed through the Academy at Goodison Park and he is the current England Under-19 captain.
Lundstram celebrated his 19th birthday on Monday, just a day after netting in Everton Under-21s' 3-0 victory over Middlesbrough.
He will join Brian Flynn's squad initially for a month and he could be in line to make his Doncaster debut against Yeovil on Saturday, when a win for Rovers could take them top of League One.

I do think it is great that Hammar and Lundstram are now on loan, but I feel we are missing some top youth coach who has the brain and balls to do the right thing.
If Moyes moves then we will need to find a manager who has a real history of blooding youth players into first team players. I have thought about Nigel Adkins, what he has done with the youngsters at Southampton makes me respect him. Same with Wenger, though Wenger has bought most of his youngsters. Lambert is trying, but failing.
As I said, the next thing I want in a new manager is that he has real skills in developing young players. Who is the best option right now? I have no idea... but I would try Ole Gunnar Solskjaer or Nigel Adkins.

Good luck to Lundstram, he's played well whenever I've seen him play. Shame that we can't also send out Barkley, Duffey and Vellios to get some much needed experience.

With Moyes going, I'm hoping for Ole over the usual EPL managerial suspects being mentioned.

Gibson not in form at the moment and Osman looking tired. Do not even want to think about Neville playing there.

"The transfer window is now closed for non-emergency signings for the remainder of the season. Premier League and Scottish Premier League clubs cannot sign any players, on loan or full transfers, until the next transfer window.
Clubs in the Football League can sign players on loan outside of the transfer window (following a seven-day period after the transfer window closed on 31 January until a specified date in March).
Outside of the transfer window, any club may still sign players on an emergency basis (such as if they have no goalkeepers available) with the permission of their competition's governing body, for example the Premier League.
Players who are out of contract and do not have a club can be signed outside of the transfer window if they are unattached free agents when the window closes."

I maintain play McAleny, Vellios, Barkley and Duffy or loan them out, let them have a real feel of how competitive footie really is, because they are NOT getting it here with Moyes and Everton.
I am not the slightest surprised we have not blooded one single academy player into a first team player since Anichebe and Rodwell. Now that is a sign of a faulty youth setup with coaches who have no real qualification.
I think of David Weir and Alan Stubbs as the worst coaches in the PL. We need to get top quality youth coaches in right now, turn the tide for once.
I hurt for Vellios, McAleny, Barkley, and Duffy.

Quote from their manager "Rovers boss Brian Flynn is tipping young loan midfielder John Lundstram to have a big future in the game after producing an impressive performance in Tuesday's game at Shrewsbury.".
