Linked with Forest ... Defender Brendan Galloway

EVERTON defender Brendan Galloway is the latest name to be linked with a move to Nottingham Forest.

The England under-21 international spent a frustrated spell on loan at Premier League side West Brom last season, seeing that move cut short in April.

Zimbabwe-born Galloway made just five appearances for Albion last term, having arrived at the Hawthorns in the summer.

The 22-year-old made just the solitary appearance after September and that came in the 2-1 FA Cup defeat to Forest's arch-rivals Derby County in January when Tony Pulis' side were dumped out in the third round.

Reds boss Mark Warburton is believed to be keen on the defender, who started his career at MK Dons and can play at left-back, as well as in the middle.Galloway returned to feature for Everton's under-23 side at the end of the season, helping them to the Premier League Two title, before suffering a hamstring injury.

Galloway returned to feature for Everton's under-23 side at the end of the season, helping them to the Premier League Two title, before suffering a hamstring injury.

The youngster revealed he had spoken to boss Ronald Koeman about his future before jetting off on holiday for the summer, and is looking forward to returning to the club amid talk of a move away.

"I have spoken to the manager [since I returned] but because of my injury, we'll have a good chat when I come back. I worked with him last pre-season and I'm really looking forward to working with him again."

Speaking about his time under Pulis at West Brom, Galloway said: "It was a tough season and I learnt a lot.


"I experienced something different but now I'm happy to be back.

"It was frustrating (not to play more games) but I learnt a different style of football, completely different to here (at Everton)."

"As a young footballer, you need to learn other aspects to your game. The lads were all brilliant and I made a lot of friends there - they welcomed me and they are all good footballers and good people.

"I learnt how to deal with not playing, which was very hard, but I'm happy to be back here. It is tough because as a young boy all you want to do is step out on to that pitch but when you are not able to, it gets frustrating.

"Experiencing another Premier League football club and coming back here, you realise every single one of us is in a fortunate position. We've got to work hard to stay here and maintain that level that the gaffer wants."
