What happens next with forgotten Everton man

Everton finished last season with Lucas Digne as first-choice, writes Phil Kirkbride.

The long-term future of the position was also sorted. Electric teenager Thierry Small had become the youngest player to ever represent the club and was making strides at under-23 level.

Ben Godfrey had also shown his ability to deputise, to a high standard, when Digne was injured too.

And there was another name on the left-back roster.

But one who, in the recent shake-up, may have been forgotten about: Niels Nkounkou.

At that point, Nkounkou was 12 moths into his Everton career and had shown flashes of his potential in a season spent primarily with the first-team squad, when he had been earmarked, initially at least, for David Unsworth’s group.

After years of searching for adequate cover for Leighton Baines, Everton looked to be in rude health at left-back.
