According to TWTD, Town closing in on the season-long loan signing of Everton left-back Luke Garbutt.

Garbutt is primarily seen as a left-back, however he converted into a left-winger at Oxford last season and it was in that position which he played his best football, four goal goals in 36 appearances.

There were rumours on Twitter that Garbutt was at Portman Road surfaced earlier this month and it now appears that the 26-year-old was indeed at the club with the move having been ongoing for a few weeks.

The Blues have been in the market for a left-back this summer with Myles Kenlock the only recognisable left back with Jonas Knudsen having departed at the end of last season.

Garbutt is contracted to Everton until 2020, the left-back has been out on loan several times with Cheltenham, Colchester, Fulham, Wigan and as mentioned, Oxford United.

It’s understood he is set to join up with the Town squad for the back end of their pre-season training camp in Germany and could be involved in the four-team Interwetten Cup at Meppen on Sunday.
