Everton’s 19-year-old winger on verge of joining Belgian club

According to Het Laatste Nieuws, Everton youngster Fraser Hornby is drawing attention from the Jupiler Pro League with KV Kortrijk after the 19-year-old, who is expected to arrive in Belgium.

Kortrijk’s idea is to land the starlet on a season-long loan deal, but it is still not clear if it is a dry loan or one with an option to make the deal permanent next summer.

The youngster will take a look at the Belgian club’s facilities, after which he will decide on whether or not he wants to join De Kerels.

Kortrijk have won two of their opening four league matches, and this includes a 4-2 win over Vincent Kompany’s Anderlecht, who has been dismissed the role of manager and will take care of club’s performances only on the pitch, after losing all of four matches in the domestic league.

Everton signed Fraser Hornby for their academy from Northampton Town back in 2014.

Having featured for the Merseysiders in the U18 Premier League in 2016/17 campaign, the teenager made his debut in the Premier League 2 during the next season.

A loan move to Belgian would be beneficial for Hornby’s growth with places in the senior side occupied by Richarlison and Bernard.

Meanwhile, Everton are preparing to face newly-promoted Aston Villa with the Villans having zero points after losing two matches, while the Toffees will look to secure their second win of the new Premier League season at Villa Park.
