Fulham Football Club is delighted to announce the season-long loan signing of defender Luke Garbutt from Everton.
The 22-year-old defender has represented England at all youth levels from Under 16s to Under 21s and recently represented his country at the UEFA European Under-21 Championship this summer.
Garbutt started his youth career at Leeds United before moving to Everton in 2009. He made over 50 appearances and scored 5 goals during his two loans spells at Cheltenham Town and Colchester United.
On his return to the North West, he made his first-team debut for the Toffees in a Premier League match against Southampton in April 2014 which lead to a first call-up to the England Under 21s side.
Speaking to fulhamfc.com, Garbutt said: “When I got the call saying Fulham wanted me on a season-long loan, I spoke to the manager and the staff here and I liked what they had to say and their plans for me this season. They’ve shown their faith and trust in me. I’m really looking forward to working with the boys and obviously the main objective is to get promoted this season.”
