Everton youngster Tom Davies targets more first-team football

The midfielder made his debut for Everton in the final day win over Norwich City.

Everton youngster Tom Davies has told the club’s official website that he is targeting more first-team football in future.

The young Everton midfielder was handed his senior debut in the final game of the season against Norwich City.

He impressed too with a strong display in the middle of the park, catching the eye and leading may Evertonians to suggest he could be the next big thing out of the Goodison Park academy.

The Blues are certainly keen on him, with reports this week claiming they are set to give him a new long-term deal at the club this summer.

And after making his first-team debut Davies says he is determined to stay in the picture and keep on improving.

“It was a brilliant day in general for me and my family,” he told evertonfc.com.

“I think I did alright, hopefully I can kick on from here next year, stay in and around it (the first team) and keep improving.”

The future certainly does look like a bright one for Davies if his debut is anything to go by.

Much will rest on who the club appoints as their next manager, with Roberto Martinez having been sacked earlier this month.

The Catalan was a firm believer in giving youth a chance during his time at Everton as the likes of John Stones and Ross Barkley prove, and it will be interesting to see if the new boss continues that policy.
