Everton youngster George Green has joined League Two side Tranmere Rovers on loan until the end of the season.

Green, who is highly-rated at Everton, joins the League Two outfit with the intention of getting some first-team football under his belt, as he has been a regular in the under 18s side but has also managed seven appearances for the under 21s this season.

At just 19 years old the Toffees starlet has a bright future ahead of him at Goodison Park.

Everton have such a fantastic youth system with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Jack Rodwell and Ross Barkley all graduating out of their academy. Tranmere Rovers will be hoping they can help nurture another graduate of the Merseyside club to stardom. 

Green joined Everton at the tender age of 15 from Yorkshire side Bradford City for a reported whopping £2m. The then reserve team manager and former West Bromwich Albion boss Alan Irvine stated: "He has got good potential but at the moment that's all it is, he has got a lot of work to do."

Irvine also said: "George is a young player who was attracting interest from a number of clubs. We're happy to have him and we're looking forward to working with him here at the Academy."

Green is working his way up the England ladder as he has represented his country at under 17s level. Green has also been compared to former Evertonians Wayne Rooney and Paul Gascoigne, so the skies the limit for this youngster.

Green does have his work cut out at Prenton Park as he will aim to inspire Tranmere further away from the relegation zone as they are currently out of the relegation zone albeit by goal difference.

Everton have also allowed Green's team mate Francisco Junior leave on loan to Port Vale. Junior has struggled to force his way into the Everton first team.
