Everton boss Sam Allardyce has claimed that the door is not yet shut on Luke Garbutt resurrecting his Everton career.

The 24-year old left-back was once considering Leighton Baines’ successor when he first broke into Everton’s first-team, but several difficult loan spells later and Garbutt’s career with the Toffees’ is on a knife-edge.

However Allardyce says that he will use the time between now and the end of the transfer window – when revised squad lists must be submitted – to assess Garbutt.

Garbutt was left out of the Blues’ Premier League squad for the first half of the season, and is currently training with the club’s Under-23s.

Allardyce nominated for Manager of the Month award

  Allardyce nominated for Manager of the Month award Everton boss Sam Allardyce has been nominated for the Premier League Manager of the Month award for December. As reported by the London Evening Standard, Allardyce will battle against Pep Guardiola, Roy Hodgson, Jurgen Klopp, Spurs’ Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte. The Toffees came close to going the entire month unbeaten in all competitions, only to lose to Bournemouth in their final game of 2017. In eight matches, Everton won four, drew three, including the Merseyside Derby and lost once. The strong run of form has eased the relegation worries that surrounded the club earlier in the season. Allardyce has turned Everton’s form around and managed to get them scoring again, netting 11 times in seven games. Goals were had to come by under Ronald Koeman and it’s clearly been an area of improvement under the former England boss. Everton are now ninth in the Premier League, seven points above the bottom three.

Talking about Garbutt’s situation, Allardyce said;

“On my understanding he wasn’t included in the 25 man squad at the start of the season, he hasn’t been training with us for that period.”

“My first assessment of the team has to be of that first 25 players selected in that squad and trying to get down to all the other professionals at the club.”

“So that process is still ongoing because of all the games we’ve played over Christmas. We have until the end of January to look at players who haven’t been named in that squad and find whether they have the desire or determination to show myself and the coaching staff that they are, one, willing to fight to get in the squad and, two, maybe for a chance in the first-team.”

Allardyce is said to be targeting a left-sided defender this month, where he is exceptionally light. Leighton Baines is the only senior left-back in the squad, with usual right-back Cuco Martina filling in with the former out injured.

Allardyce considering Antonio bid .
Sam Allardyce is considering making a move for West Ham forward Michail Antonio this month, according to the Mirror. Allardyce is known to be in the market for offensive reinforcements this month, having already signed Cenk Tosun from Besiktas and with a deal for Theo Walcott in the pipeline. The former West Ham manager has acknowledged that his side need an injection of pace, and Antonio would certainly bring that, as well as raw strength and another goal threat for the Toffees. Antonio signed a new deal with the Hammers last May, and the club may be hesitant to sanction a sale of one of their star assets. However, Everton believe that £20million would be enough to pry the former Sheffield Wednesday man away from London. Antonio has missed much of this season through injury, but he is expected to return soon. He was top goalscorer in the Premier League for the Hammers last season with nine goals.
