The 22-year-old left-back signed a new, five-year contract last month but his chances of breaking into the first-team are slim at present, with Leighton Baines a regular starter.
As such, boss Roberto Martinez apparently wants his youngster to earn some valuable first-team experience in the form of a loan spell and four Championship clubs have allegedly put their name forward.
Making the correct decision:
The England U21 international is evidently a sound prospect, and a player which could do a fine job at the top end of the Championship this coming season.
During his rare Premier League appearances last season, the talented left-back looked to get forward, provided an attacking outlet and involved himself in patient team play.
Thus, it’s important that the Toffees choose the ideal club for Garbutt, preferably one which has a similar philosophy of possession-based football so he can develop accordingly.
QPR and Ipswich are both expected to challenge for a play-off spot and participating in a winning team will breed confidence. However, arguably Fulham are a better fit in terms of shape and style.
