Josh Bowler Everton

Hull City are set to seal a deal for Everton winger Josh Bowler, we can exclusively reveal.

The 20-year-old, who was snapped up by the Toffees from Queens Park Rangers in 2017, is highly regarded but the Toffees wanted him to get first-team football.

The Tigers were one of a number of Championship clubs including DerbyMiddlesbrough and Birmingham who have looked at Bowler.

But we understand that Hull have won the race to land him and Bowler is now due to undergo a medical on Humberside with a view to joining on-loan for the season.

Bowler played 16 games in the PL2 Division 1 for Everton last term, scoring three goals and adding an assist.

David Unsworth told Everton’s official website: “Josh Bowler was terrific. We need to get the ball to his feet in the final third and that’s where you see his magic.

“He did great for both goals, he’s been out for a couple of weeks but that 90 minutes and the two assists will do him the world of good.”
