Report: Everton set to offer Brendan Galloway new contract to ward off Premier League interest

Everton Warm Up

Everton are set to offer talented defender Brendan Galloway a new contract.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Brendan Galloway is set to be offered a bumper new contract to stay at Goodison Park, amid interest from a number of Premier League sides.

The 19-year-old defender moved to Merseyside from MK Dons in the summer of 2014, with Everton fighting off interest from Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Spurs for his signature.

So far, the Toffees decision to sign Galloway has been lauded, with the youngster putting in a series of impressive displays in the Premier League.

He has made six starts for Roberto Martinez’s side after breaking into the team towards the end of last season, and has established himself as first-choice left-back whilst Leighton Baines is out-of-action through injury.

He has shown an aptitude in defence, but has also proven himself to be a natural replacement for Baines with the attacking work he does, and it was Galloway who registered the assist for Steven Naismith’s first goal against Chelsea with a perfectly cross.

The full-back has reportedly been garnering interest from a number of Premier League sides, although the report does not state any names of teams wanting him, and the Toffees are set to offer him bumper new deal to ward off any rival interest, whilst also rewarding him for his growing status in the Everton first-team.
