As reported by The Sun, the 19-year-old joined Everton from QPR in the summer of 2017 on a three-year contract.
The teenager has responded to Fernandes’s comments on Twitter quite defiantly, and is confident that his time at Everton will come.
Don’t overhype players and destroy careers. We have seen that before in @qpr and other clubs. Agents destroy so many careers. Who remembers josh bowler. Its all about patience and development. #shouldhavestayed .— Tony Fernandes (@tonyfernandes) July 28, 2018
Great club, but have made the right decision. My time will come tony.— Josh Bowler (@JoshBowler10) July 28, 2018
Bowler has failed to make a breakthrough in the Everton first team, and the youngster could struggle for playing time next season.
However, it is great that the teenager is confident, and indeed his time will come. What is important is that the winger continues to work hard and impress for the Everton youth team.
Everton will be aiming to break into the top six of the Premier League next season.
