Manchester United’s Midfielder Donny Van de Beek joined Everton FC on a season-long loan move where he can get some game time.
In 50 appearances for United in all competitions, Van de Beek has only two goals and the same number of assists.
He has shown glimpses of his quality when used, though, with Fernandes (0.66) the only United regular to create more big chances per 90 minutes than Van de Beek (0.34) And with an opportunity to showcase the talent that made him one of Europe’s top properties when at Ajax, Van de Beek is relishing the chance to get going for Everton.
Donny Van de Beek said:
“I hope to bring my football qualities, my passing, and, of course, scoring goals.
“It is a big part of my game to score and assists, and I will try to do that again. And it is not only offensive, but you also have to defend as a midfielder, and I can do that as well.
“I want to show my qualities, my strengths, to the people in England – but especially the fans from Everton. But, of course, the most important thing is winning games and going up to the table.
“We have good players in the team and the talent and ability to go up in the league. But, for that, we need to work hard, and I want to be part of this.
“Everton is a big club, with big players, history and amazing fans. The club has everything to go up and be higher on the table.
“I played at Goodison twice last season without fans and it will be lovely to see the stadium full.”
Van de Beek, Who could make his Everton FC debut in next Tuesday’s Premier League visit to Newcastle United, added:
“I’m fit. I trained a lot for myself, and I was teaching a lot with the team at United.
“I have a few days to train fully, and I’m sure I’II be there [ready for Newcastle].”
