Everton forward Tom Cannon has now sent a three-word message to his young teammate Lewis Warrington after the midfielder sealed a loan move ahead of the 2023/24 season.

The ‘magnificent’ Warrington has joined Championship side Plymouth Argyle on a season-long loan as the 20-year-old continues his development.

Taking to Instagram after securing the loan, Warrington expressed his delight at the opportunity, posting: “Buzzing to sign for @Only1argyle for the season can’t wait to play in front of the green army 💚 Lets make this season one to remember 👊🏼 ”

Commenting on his Everton teammates’ post, forward Tom Cannon replied: “Good luck brother.”

There are high hopes for young Warrington at Goodison Park, and it is hoped that the 20-year-old midfielder returns from his spell at Argyle ready for Premier League football with Everton.

Indeed, the Birkenhead-born star caught the eye of Carlo Ancelotti when the Italian coach occupied the Goodison Park dugout.

Ancelotti stated: ““I think that we have a good academy, not only Lewis [Warrington] but there are players training with us a lot of times.

I can say that our academy is a good academy because we have players with talent. I think we have a good future in that sense.”

Indeed, Tom Cannon himself could be set to complete a temporary move away from Merseyside, with a return to Preston North End recently reported as a possibility.

Cannon spent the second half of last season on loan at Deepdale, scoring eight goals in 19 appearences for Ryan Lowe’s side.

Everton could well have limited expenditure for the foreseeable so producing first-team talent from the academy would be advantageous for Sean Dyche.

However, it has been some time since an Everton academy graduate had a long-term significant impact in the club’s first-team, so hopefully this next generation can rectify that.
