Former Rangers defender Nathan Patterson could be heading out of the Everton exit door on loan, according to a report, as his Premier League dream move threatens to turn sour.
Patterson has struggled to make any sort of impact at Goodison Park since his January move to the Toffees and, according to The Sun, he could be sent out on loan.
The report claims that Everton boss Frank Lampard can’t guarantee Patterson the game time that he needs to continue his development and will look to let him leave temporarily.
The Scotland international has only recently returned to action from injury and is sure to have a number of suitors should Everton decide to let him go on loan.
Since moving to Everton, Patterson has only managed 45 minutes of competitive football – against Boreham Wood in the FA Cup – and Lampard is said to be in the market for a new right back.
Patterson needs to get the right move and get back playing again quickly after Rangers exit struggles
Patterson’s career has stalled since his move to Everton and he needs to get back playing again quickly and get his career back on track.
While there is likely to be no shortage of interest in signing Patterson on loan, he needs to make sure he gets a move somewhere that he is likely to play regularly.
Whether that is in Scotland, England or somewhere else doesn’t really matter but the defender can’t just jump at the first offer that comes his way.
