thumbnail Hello,

The striker is set to spend the first half of the season in Scotland...

Everton have today officially confirmed that 20-year-old striker Lukas Jutkiewicz will join Scottish Premier League outfit Motherwell on loan until January, as he looks to gather some first-team experience.

The striker is looking forward to testing himself in the SPL, and views it as a real opportunity to show his capabilities in a highly competitive environment.

"I’m really looking forward to it. I know other players have gone up there on loan and really made a name for themselves and I’m hoping to do the same," he told the Toffees' official website.

The move is subject to FA clearance, but the youngster could line up alongside another Evertonian on loan in Lanarkshire, goalkeeper John Ruddy, when the Steelmen take on Aberdeen this weekend.
