QUAKERS SIGN EVERTON YOUNGSTER ON LOAN

Posted on: Fri 09 Oct 2009

Darlington have signed Everton rookie defender Moses Barnett on a month's loan.

The 18-year-old England youth international, who can play at centre-back or left-back, has completed his move in time to be available for tomorrow's game at Dagenham.

Barnett is a replacement for Liverpool left-back Robbie Threlfall, who earlier today had second thoughts on joining up with the Quakers.

Boss Steve Staunton said: "Everyone was happy with the deal with Robbie, but this morning he had a change of heart after talking to Liverpool's reserve team coach, but this happens and we move on.

"I don't want players here who don't want to be here, and we're delighted that Moses was available. We know a lot about him, we knew we needed a left-back and he was one of three players we were looking at.

"He's a very athletic player, tall and quick, so he should be a good acquisition for us. We're looking to bring players in from Premier League clubs so hopefully this is a positive sign."

Barnett, who joined Everton's Academy from Arsenal at the end of the 2006-07, is a powerful defender who has represented England at U-16, U-17 and U-18 levels.

He became a regular fixture in Everton's Academy team and was then integrated into Andy Holden's reserves side last season.
