The winger wants to impress the Toffees with his second opportunity after injury disrupted his first stint

German-born attacker of Ghanaian descent Anton Donkor is hoping to make the most of his second coming to English outfit Everton.

The 19-year-old has joined the Toffees on loan until January 2018, having seen an ankle injury scupper a first loan spell last season.

He is permanently contracted to German side Wolfsburg until 2020.

“I’m very happy to be back,” Donkor told the Toffees' official website.

“I’m looking forward to pre-season to show my teammates and the fans that it was the right decision for the club to re-sign me. 

"I’m very proud to be here and I want to show my best performances.

“I started very well here last season but the ankle injury was a big disappointment. 

"I was out for about eight weeks and I had to go back to Germany and do all my treatment. 

"But I got fit again quickly and now I’m feeling better than before. I’m feeling at 100 per cent.”

Like before, he will link up with Everton's under-23 outfit who are managed by David Unsworth.

He made three appearances for the development side before his injury.

“Training so far has been very good - and tough. After six weeks I hadn’t played football, but I was very happy to be back out on the pitch," Donkor added.

"David Unsworth is a great guy and I enjoy training with him. He has a good style of coaching.

“I love it here and English football is perfect for me. I’m very happy to be back.”


Of half-Ghanaian parentage, Donkor has played for Germany at under-18 and 20 levels.
