Lewis Gibson -

Lewis Gibson, who was signed from Newcastle United in the summer, is expected to be named in Steve Cooper’s England Under-17s side for the World Cup in India next month and, as a result, could miss up to four Under-23s fixtures for the Toffees.

He has made an impressive start to life on Merseyside so far - and has explained why the decision to join Everton was an easy one.

"The way the club is going at the moment, everything seems to be on the up,” said Gibson, while at an Everton in the Community event last week.

"The Under-23s won the league last year and I knew the potential the team had. And the way I play, I fitted right into their system and it was also about how much they wanted us, it showed from the start.

"Unsy and [Everton Under-23s scout] Jamie Hoyland expressed to me and my agent how much they wanted me and that helped take me to the decision."

While Gibson is now relishing working under manager Unsworth and assistant John Ebbrell, he reveals another former Blue has also made a huge impact on his fledgling career so far.

“My old manager at Newcastle [Under-18s] was Dave Watson,” he explains. “So I already had a link [to Everton] through Dave.

“Dave Watson helped me a lot and developed me as an Under-18s player and now David Unsworth is making me an Under-23s player, working on little things like positioning.

“I've come from a good place with coaches with Watson and Unsworth.

“They won the FA Cup together here and even before I came to Everton I was asking Watson about winning the FA Cup, I knew how much it meant to him and Everton fans to win it.

“Dave Watson as a person is one of the nicest people I've ever met, I've always had a soft spot for him and when I left I made sure to ring him to say thanks for what he'd done for me. I was grateful for what he'd done for me.”
