Everton young gun Seamus Coleman will be a serious contender for Young Player of the Year – if manager David Moyes has anything to say about it.

“He must be close,” the Toffees' manager told the Liverpool Daily Post of Coleman’s chances of picking up a nomination.

“One of our scouts, Mick Docherty, picked him out from Ireland and he has come here and done a brilliant job for us.


Everton bought Coleman for a steal at £600,000 from Irish outfit Silgo Rovers. That was two years ago – today the youngster has six goals in the Barclays Premier League so far this season and a bright future ahead.

Of 22 year old Coleman’s performance against Fulham on Saturday, Moyes said, “He was up and down today but he’s going to be up and down.

“You don’t find an absolute diamond for that money. Its very rare that happens so there will be times when he doesn’t look completely comfortable.

“But he’s had no real footballing experience at this level, or any level at all and very little full-time training and very little technical work, so we hope there is going to be more improvement."

Moyes believes there is much potential to be found in the young Irishman.
