Gemmill Expecting Hornby Interest

Scotland Under-21 boss Scot Gemmill believes clubs will be queuing up to sign Everton striker Fraser Hornby on loan.

The 18-year-old, who started his youth career at Northampton Town, scored a hat-trick against Andorra in a Euro 2019 qualifier at Tynecastle on Thursday night in a fine performance.

Gemmill was delighted with Hornby’s display and feels there will be plenty of clubs taking interest in the Toffees starlet ahead of the January loan window.

He said: “I’m delighted for Fraser. You can see a young player starting to emerge and he’s developing all the time.

He had a good tournament in Toulon in the summer and he’s really benefited from playing against those sort of teams.

“He’s got that physicality which is important but Fraser is not just about that. It’s about intelligence, a willingness to do the work and the talent as well. In football today you need the full package but he is definitely on schedule.

“I’m thrilled he’s come home to play in Scotland in an important qualification match and done so well.
“I’m sure clubs are queuing up to take him on loan now.”
