I don’t think there’s a Premier League side that hasn’t been linked with Mason Holgate, certainly not a Premier League side that wouldn’t want to sign him, but if the BBC is right, and more often than not they are, he’ll be off to Everton.

BBC Radio Sheffield understands former Man United trialist Holgate, and a player linked with Bournemouth, Newcastle and Aston Villa too, will be signing for the Toffees.

This is a deal they are reportedly hopeful of sealing before the weekend.

Everton are no strangers to signing our best defensive talent as they signed the Reds’ academy graduate John Stone in 2013, who is now one of the best defenders in the country, an England international and being linked with a multi-million pound move to Chelsea!

Holgate the next Stones? Obviously different types of players but the comparisons will be made, particularly if the 18-year-old does complete an anticipated move to Goodison Park….
