Everton under-23s striker Ellis Simms has joined Blackpool on loan for the rest of the season.

This is the first career loan move for Simms, 20, who has yet to make his first team debut but has made the substitutes’ bench four times under Carlo Ancelotti so far.

He will now spend the remainder of the 2020-21 campaign with Blackpool, who are currently 16th in League One.
