Everton youngster desperate to make his mark at Goodison Park

first_img Matthew Kennedy 1 Everton winger Matthew Kennedy has targeted a first-team place at Goodison Park when he returns to Merseyside from his loan spell at Hibernian.The Scotland Under-21 international has impressed for Alan Stubbs’ side in the Scottish Championship this term and has made seven appearances since joining Hibs on a six-month deal in August.Kennedy is hoping to follow in the footsteps of fellow midfielders, Leon Osman and Ross Barkley, both of whom benefitted from the experience of loan spells away from the Blues before becoming regulars.“Alan Stubbs asked me to move up on loan when he first joined as manager,” the 19-year-old said.“I knew I was going to go out on loan this season but I wasn’t sure where and I didn’t want to rush into anything.”In an interview with evertonfc.com, he added: “After speaking with Roberto [Martinez], we decided it would be the best move for me because I know the way Alan works and he knows me, which was good for everyone.“The club itself is fantastic. It’s not until you come up here that you realise how big it is. The stadium is good and the fans really get behind the team.”last_img
