ON LOAN FROM EVERTON
Liam Walsh is a central midfielder who is comfortable on the ball with a great range of passing and is dangerous from set-piece situations. He was just five years old when he joined Everton and scooped the Club’s 2013/14 Academy Goal of the Season award for a well-rehearsed strike for the Under-16s side in a fixture away at Manchester United. Walsh, who names Xavi as his role model, is eligible to play for both England and Italy. He spent the second half of the 2015/16 campaign on loan at Yeovil Town, playing 17 games and scoring one goal in a productive spell with the Glovers.
Walsh then returned to the Blues for the 2016/17 season and played a vital role in midfield, chipping in with six goals, as David Unsworth's side secured the Premier League 2 title. He was named Premier League 2 Player of the Month in February 2017 for a number of outstanding performances and was also shortlisted for the league's Player of the Year award.
