In a recent interview with the Derby Telegraph, on-loan Burton Albion wide player Nathan Broadhead expressed his delight at penning a long-term contract with Everton before sealing a season-long loan switch to the League One earlier this summer. The Welsh winger told the Derby Telegraph that it was his dream to play for the Toffees first-team and said, “That’s what I’ve always wanted to do since I was young.
“That’s my dream, to play at Goodison Park.
“I played there last season in the SportPesa Cup, in a friendly, I played in that and scored there.
“Marco Silva, he’s a very good manager. I enjoy working under him and I think he gets the best out of me.
“Everyone has to believe in themselves. If they’re a first-team player, even if you’re an academy player, you just have to believe in yourself and hopefully you can get a chance.”
Broadhead’s words would be music to the ears of the Everton supporters as he is highly-rated at Goodison Park. The Bangor-born talent joined the Merseyside club at the age of 16 before graduating from their academy. He is on the verge of breaking into Silva’s first-team but needs some first-team experience under his belt so that he can be ready for Premier League football. Hence, Everton’s decision to sign him up on a new contract and send him out on loan to Burton Albion could reap dividends for the Welsh prospect in the long-run.
Broadhead’s Promising Future In English Football
If Broadhead can have a good season while on loan at Pirelli Stadium Princess Way, then he would have a great chance of making an impact for the Toffees in the 2020-21 campaign. The 21-year-old came on as a substitute to play for Burton in their narrow 1-0 loss to Ipswich Town in the League One earlier this month. He managed to get 24 valuable minutes of game time on the pitch, which would do his confidence a world of good.
Broadhead has represented Wales at various youth levels and is currently a vital member of the Welsh Under-21 side, having featured in four international matches for them thus far. The Welsh starlet made a name for himself in the Premier League 2 where he scored six goals and grabbed four assists in 36 appearances for the Toffees Under-23 side.
Is Broadhead A Star In The Making At Merseyside?
There is no doubt that Broadhead has incredible potential and could become a future star in English football if he can continue improving his game with each campaign. Marco Silva has already shown during his time at Everton that he is willing to give his young players a chance if they are good enough to play for the first-team.
The recent emergence of Tom Davies and Beni Baningime should serve as proof that the Toffees academy graduates have a fair shot of earning some playing time in the Premier League. Broadhead is a prospect for the future and is in for a promising future at Goodison Park.
