A strong tackling and creative midfielder, who worked his way into the England U17 squad during the 2010-11 campaign after impressing in the Nordic Tournament.
Two-footed and with a good range of passing at his disposal, the Liverpool-born ace has been with Everton since a young age and provides a bit of bite into the team whenever selected.
His first full season on the international stage saw him play a major part in the U17s' run to the semi-final of the European Championship in Serbia before experiencing an U17 World Cup in Mexico, where John Peacock's Young Lions reached the quarter final.
The 2011-12 season saw him play twice for Noel Blake's U18s, captaining the side to a win against Poland before he made another step-up to the U19s squad, again under Blake, as he helped England to qualify for the European Championship Finals in Estonia.
He then captained the U19s in the 2012-13 season, before Peter Taylor selected him for the U20 squad to travel to the World Cup in Turkey in the summer of 2013.
His progress at club level saw him loaned out to Doncaster Rovers during the 2012-13 campaign, helping them to win the League One Championship.
