Town boss, Paul Lambert has been speaking about his latest signing, Luke Garbutt, who signed on loan from Everton last week.

Garbutt trained with the Blues at their German training camp but did not take part in the Interwetten Cup yesterday, however he is likely to take part at Colchester on Friday.

“I think he has an incredible left foot and he puts incredible balls into the box and his delivery is fantastic,” Lambert said of Garbutt.

“Technically he’s a gifted footballer and his set plays are excellent, so hopefully he’ll add something to us.

“I’m looking forward to working with him.

“If players can do it then (being versatile) is great but I know where I want to play him.

“His delivery from wide areas, whether it’s left back or left wing is fabulous so he’ll be an asset to us that’s for sure.”

Garbutt’s Everton contract expires at the end of next season, when asked if the loan move could lead to a permanent deal next summer, Lambert said: “He needs somewhere to settle as well, having always been out on loan.

“A lot of water has to go under that bridge to see where he goes with it but as a guy and as a professional footballer he’s somebody who wants to do well.

“Along with (James) Norwood and (Tomas) Holy I think he’ll be a really good asset.”
