Everton midfielder Beni Baningime could be heading abroad

Once hailed as the brightest prospect and tipped to replace Idrissa Gueye in the senior side, the midfielder seemed just to disappear last season and still has not made his way back.

The Football Insider claims that Brondby from Denmark are leading the race to sign the player on loan, with manager Marco Silva having approved his exit.

Starting the 2017-18 campaign with the Under-23s, the midfielder was brought up to the first team by Davis Unsworth during his short stint following the sack of Ronald Koeman.

That ended in the then 19-year-old signing a four-year deal back in January 2018, but under Sam Allardyce, he was banished to the youth team again before returning to the senior side to end the season.

When Marco Silva took over last year, an ankle injury during the preseason knocked the youngster out of contention, and when Beni Baningime was finally fit again in late October, he was sent to the youngsters to get fit.

With no spot for him in the first-team, the midfielder was sent out on loan to Wigan Athletic for the rest of the 2018-19 campaign but after playing the first game, was never seen or heard from again until he returned to Goodison Park this summer.

Andre Gomes and Fabian Delph were injured and Schneiderlin schedule to miss the match against Watford FC after a suspension and the starlet may be given a chance to prove himself.
