Everton have won the Premier League 2 title twice in the last three seasons with the likes of Tom Davies, Jonjoe Kenny, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Beni Baningime being rewarded for their impressive performances at reserve level with debuts for the senior side.
And Adeniran, who moved to Goodison Park from Fulham two years ago in a deal that could rise to £4 million (Sky), may be about to follow in their footsteps.
A central midfielder who can also play out wide, the 20-year-old played 25 games as Unsworth led Everton to the U23 title in May and the former left-back has revealed that Adeniran has since caught Silva’s eye with his energetic displays.
"There's a potential of Dennis," Unsworth said. “He trains with the first-team every day which is great for him and he's getting his games with us.
"[A loan] might be a possibility but it wouldn't surprise me if he stayed until the end of the season with the first-team so who knows?"
Everton will host Watford in the EFL Cup fourth round at the end of October and Adeniran will be hoping to make his debut in England’s secondary cup competition.
And, with Andre Gomes and Jean-Philippe Gbamin struggling for injuries at the start of the season, don’t rule out the England youth star playing Premier League football for the first time before too long.
