Antonee Robinson's loan at Bolton extended

Friday 5 January 2018  3 Comments  [Jump to last]

Everton have extended the loan deal for young defender Antonee Robinson to gain more first-team experience in the Championship with Bolton Wanderers until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old initially joined the Trotters on loan until January and has made 20 appearances for the side.

"We're very pleased to have extended Antonee's loan as we look to keep our squad as strong as possible," boss Phil Parkinson told the club website.

"We are pleased with the progress he has made during his time with us."

Didn't realise he was now 20. Says a lot that his deal is extended when we are desperate for a left back.

Hopefully he can kick on and gain good experience at Bolton and be an option next season. We still have left back options in Garbutt, Galloway and Connolly, but expect the manager will dip into the transfer market this month. First saw him play in a friendly at Leeds in Martinez' last pre season, just before he turned 18 in August 2015. A good strong player.

I've written on another thread that Mr Allardyce might do well to recall a lot of those youngsters out on loan so he can have a close up look at them. With that in mind, I wonder if recalling Robinson to try him in the 1st XI and replacing him at Bolton with Garbutt might be worthwhile?

It does appear however that the Manager would prefer buying players in the more senior 25-30 age bracket despite the fact that players like Kenny and Holgate have improved with an extended first team run.
