22 September 2020
By Hob Nob Anyone?

Reading have confirmed the signing of Everton defender Lewis Gibson on a season long loan deal. Gibson played at the Newcastle academy before joining Everton in the summer of 2017. He is yet to play a competitive fixture for the Toffees and spent the second half of last season on loan at League One Fleetwood. At Fleetwood he played 11 times in the league (including both play-off semi final legs). He also featured for Everton's U21 side in the Football League Trophy.

19 yo CB/LB from Everton. Apparently we are after him on loan. According to one ov the ITK accounts over on Twitter, he's already visited the club.

Was thinking we should try and get Max Kilman from Wolves. Local lad, and can play LB and CB.

Lewis Gibson, 20 year old centre back born in Durham

Liverpool Echo says VP impressed during talks(!) Ancelotti rates the lad very highly and was thinking of keeping Gibson around the Everton squad this season.



9 apps on loan at Fleetwood last season and has represented England at u18, u19 and u20.

Season long loan but there is a “break” clause meaning the player can be recalled in January.

Hope he doesn’t talk to Mr Virginia before arriving ...

CB & LB is valuable versatility given our reliance on Richards. Think this would be a good signing.

As long as. It is a simple cover and not pushing our own players out of the side.

I’d rather get this guy in and send our lot on loan to get game time.

With McIntyre’s injury plagued start to his short career so far, it makes perfect sense IMO to bring in another body there

Wouldn’t be against sending Holmes out on loan for the season regardless, personally doesn’t look quite ready for me yet but that’s on a limited sample of games

To be honest if this guy is brought in its cover for Richards something we desperately need. If we sign Ng aswell defence can be ticked off as done. First team regulars and Ng, Holmes, McIntyre and Gibson as second string, more than good enough to cover.

We seem to be getting linked tolots of players but not actually signing any of them.
Even Riquelme, who has now been here so long he qualifies to play for England, hasn’t actually signed.
Does this suggest many of this connections are in accurate, or are we genuinely struggling to complete these deals.
In the past we’d generally kept deals under wraps until they were done, are we getting a bit sloppy ?
Or is it just a shortage of club scarves which is delaying the public announcement if the 5-6 signings wewere promised ?
