Everton youngster Brendan Galloway on his learning experience

Brendan Galloway has been utilised in Everton's first-team over recent weeks.

Everton defender Brendan Galloway has told the club's official website that there are a number of players in the first-team set-up trying to help him develop.

Galloway has been called into the senior side recently, and the more experienced players in the squad have all tried to offer him important advice.

The 19-year-old is keen to learn and says that training with Phil Jagielka, Seamus Coleman, James McCarthy, Romelu Lukaku and Sylvain Distin has been a great experience.

“I’m playing around great players; experienced players and international players, so they all help me, which is good," he said.

“When you have people like Jags, [Seamus] Coleman and [James] McCarthy in your team, you are learning from them every day by just watching them on the training ground. That’s a real help for me.

“People like Romelu [Lukaku] as well - he’s always telling me what to expect from different strikers. And [Sylvain] Distin too. I’ve learnt a lot from him - he’s a great professional and I want to wish him all the best.”

Galloway has impressed during his first showings in the senior side and will be hoping that his recent exposure to competitive action helps to take his game to the next level.

The versatile defender is regarded as one of Everton's top prospects and will be aiming to stay in the first-team next season.

If he can, that would be a major achievement for Galloway and it would provide Toffees supporters with another youngster to be excited about.

Everton appear to have a very promising crop of academy graduates breaking through and if they can all fulfil their potential, then they can form the bulk of the Merseyside club’s first-team for many years to come.
