The 20-year-old spent last season on loan at Ipswich where he played 34 times and he had hoped to use this pre-season to convince new Everton manager Marco Silva that he was ready to push for a place in the first team.
The versatile defender wasn't quite able to do that but will get another valuable 12 months down the road at Wigan where he links up with his Under-23s team-mate, Antonee Robinson.

However I cant help feeling like this is just another sad indicator of where football is at. We are far from the worst offenders but its sad that the likes of Wigan have to resort to developing Evertons kids.
Its all reward and no risk for the big teams with 40 players on their books. Farm 10 out and you could find a couple of gems. Meanwhile Wigan might get one good year and then be stripped of half of their defence.
Theres a lot of things wrong with football, but surely the loan market and player ‘hoarding is something that needs to be addressed.
