Browning joins Preston on loan

Monday 30 January 2017  13 Comments  [Jump to last]
Everton defender Tyias Browning signed a new contract with the club today and secured a move to Preston until the end of the season today.

The 22-year-old put pen to paper on a 2½-year deal and then confirmed his loan switch to Deepdale, which will provide him the prospect of first team football after a long absence through injury.

Browning picked up a serious knee injury last year and has been forced to endure a long road back to full fitness that culminated in his first appearances for Everton's U23s in recent weeks.

“It's been a tough year and there's been ups and downs but I'm just delighted now that I'm staying and I've got another chance to be playing again,” told evertontv. “I'm just eager to get playing again because it's been tough and I have missed playing.

“I've learned a lot since Wigan and that was a long time ago now. I think this loan will be a lot different and a better experience for me."

I hope Tyias plays every game and comes back in the summer looking to press harder for the first team.

I would like to see us bring Galloway back and sit him on bench for the rest of the season as cover for Baines, if Oveido leaves. Sitting in WBA reserves is not helpful to us.

Perfect move- I think they also play 3 at the back on occasion. Hopefully comes back and will be ready for next season as cover for Holgate/Williams on the RHS of defence.

With Tyias and Bryan out though, and apparently no recall for Galloway, are we leaving ourselves short at the back?

A good move for Tyias to get more game time while still having a contract with us. I guess it means that Pennington is seen as the main back up for the first team squad . unless we sign Keane from Burnley.

Good move. Now's your time, young man. Make the most of it.

Steve #1, rumour had Galloway going to Derby for the rest of the season. Don't know the status of that, but he needs games, not a bench view at Goodison.

Will be keeping a close eye on Preston now because of this.

Really like Browning; he's a good footballer and one I think will make the grade. Again unlucky with a horrendous injury; but if he can get back to playing without fear like he did in his cameo against the RS, then he's got a future (and hopefully with Everton).

Delighted he's signed a new contract. A pure athlete and hope he does well at Preston, and in the frame for a first team start next season.

Brilliant news, now we have Connolly playing, week-in & week-out at Wigan, we have Galloway seeing new ideas at West Brom, we have Tarashaj gaining experience in Germany, Geri at AC Milan, Cleverley is at Watford with a view to an £8m deal, and Hull giving Niasse a stage to show his ability.

Add to this the likes of Grant, Brewster, and many other younger lads loaned out, and all of a sudden we've got players on show in all the leagues.

I for one am very happy about this.

Hope this works out, in the sense of no further injury troubles. Good chance to consolidate and really build up the old engine.

Ironic that so many of the good young prospects seem to be the ones to suffer the bad injuries.

I am glad he was retained. Get some games under his belt, and see if he can still make it after an awful injury.

Christy (6). The late, lamented, Harold Matthews, who really knew a thing or two about football, often likened Tylas to Pele.

Although Tylas is a defender and Pele was a natural forward, if Harold said there were grounds for comparison, that is good enough for me.

Tylas' brief sojourn into the first team certainly showed enough quality and promise to satisfy me. So I, for one, sincerely hope that he fully overcomes his injury and goes on to have a great and glittering career for Everton.

A great move for the lad who did very well at right back until he got his setback.

I really hope he has a future with us, I rate him highly.

This is great news for the lad and for us. One of my favourite young Everton players.
