Welch makes Forest Green loan move

Everton Under-21s prospect Reece Welch has secured a loan move to League Two side Forest Green Rovers for the 2023-24 season, as anticipated by The Athletic.

The 19-year-old centre-half has been involved with the first-team this pre-season and is now ready for the next step in his development with a spell in the EFL with the Gloucestershire club who were relegated from League One last season.

Welch made his senior bow in the FA Cup the season before last and has been an unused substitute on other occasions. He also came off the bench in the first friendly of the summer against Stade Nyonnais in Switzerland last month.

The Academy product was reportedly close to joining MK Dons last January but the move fell through; however, he has now tied up a temporary switch to Forest Green in time to face Harrogate Town this weekend in what will be their second match of the new season.

Welch follows in the footsteps of club-mate Tyler Onyango who spent the second half of last season on loan at the New Lawn under Goodison favourite Duncan Ferguson during his short spell in Nailsworth as manager.
