Everton’s young attacker Katia Kouyate has now sent a two-word message to teammate Stanley Mills following his loan move to League One side Oxford United.

The ‘outstanding’ Mills sealed a season-long loan to Liam Manning’s Oxford side where the young Everton star will continue his development.

Indeed, the 19-year-old took to Instagram to express his excitement at the opportunity, stating: “Delighted to be able to call this home for the next season. Grateful for the opportunity. Time to get to work.”

Mills’ Everton teammate Katia Kouyate shared a post by Oxford United’s Instagram account, stating: “@stanmills25 let’s gooooo.”

Mills and Kouyate could be promising for Everton

Kouyate and Mills are two Everton youngsters who could have bright futures at the club and there are high hopes for them at Goodison Park.

Indeed, 19-year-old Stanley Mills was taken on Everton’s pre-season tour of the USA last summer, making his first-team debut while in the States.

The winger then made his professional debut a month later as the Toffees beat Fleetwood Town 1-0 in the EFL Cup.

Kouyate meanwhile has been involved in Everton’s pre-season this summer and scored the winning goal in a 2-1 victory over Swiss side Nyon earlier this month.

Speaking with the official Everton website after the game, Kouyate said: “It’s a massive moment for me and my family.

It feels like all the years of hard work – my mum taking me to training week after week and things like that… It feels like a bit of a reward for all of that and hopefully I’ve made her proud.”

The young forward could get another opportunity to impress Sean Dyche this weekend as Everton play their fourth pre-season friendly in a trip to Stoke City tomorrow afternoon.

With the Toffees relatively short on forwards, perhaps the young attacker could play a role in the senior squad this coming season.
