EPL: Frank Lampard gives update on James Garner after Man United transfer
Everton boss, Frank Lampard, has given an update on midfielder James Garner after Manchester United decided to cash in on the player.
Man United raised a few eyebrows with their decision to cash in on Garner before the summer transfer window closed.
Many fans were keen for Garner to be given a first-team shot, but new Man United manager Erik ten Hag opted to make him available for a permanent move elsewhere.
Everton swooped to sign Garner on deadline day for a fee that could rise to £15 million.
Despite the big-money move, Garner has yet to appear for his new club.
Speaking ahead of Everton’s Premier League tie with West Ham United on Sunday, Lampard said at his pre-match press conference that the 21-year-old is now fit for selection.
Lampard said: “He has trained really well. I’m a big fan of his and really pleased we managed to bring him to the club because I watched him a lot, particularly last season.
“I like his attributes a lot as a midfield player, really happy to meet him as a lad and he’s trained really hard. He’s now fit for selection and gives us another type of option in midfield with his qualities.”
