In the modern era it is refreshing to see local-born academy players pushing for a place in the senior squad, but the nature of the short-term thinking which runs rife in Premier League football could ultimately come back to haunt Everton’s Tom Davies.

Everton fans – thoughts on Davies’ future?

In Tom Davies’ case, Everton’s decision to sign Andre Gomes, the fine form of Idrissa Gueye and the mounting pressure on Marco Silva to succeed has restricted his opportunities this season.

Davies (valued at £13.5 million by Transfermarkt) is the first major prodigy to emerge from the academy since Ross Barkley.

Football managers have never been under more pressure to meet the expectations of billionaire owners.

Davies’ compelling performance in the 4-0 demolition of Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City feels like an eternity away now, but Silva must find a way of keeping him happy, otherwise Everton could end up facing another tale of what might have been for a future local-born star.

That Davies was withdrawn at half-time in Everton’s FA Cup tie with Lincoln City speaks volumes about how ineffective he has been of late, and with Farhad Moshiri adding further pressure on Silva in the public eye it’s difficult to see a way back for the 20-year-old this season.
