Nathan Broadhead admits his dream is to turn out for Everton’s first-team, despite having not yet made a senior appearance for the Toffees.
The 21-year old winger is currently on loan with Burton Albion in League One, and has already impressed despite having made just two appearances at the Pirelli Stadium.
The Wales youth international made his full debut and second league appearance for the Brewers on Saturday against Gillingham at Priestfield Stadium, scoring a quickfire brace just before half-time to bring Burton from behind to eventually win 2-1 in their first win of the season.
Highly regarded on Merseyside, Broadhead was given a contract extention before being loaned out to Burton, and the forward has ambitions to make it big in royal blue in the future. As reported by the Derby Telegraph, Broadhead had this to say on his ambitions:
That’s what I’ve always wanted to do since I was young. That’s my dream, to play at Goodison Park.
I played there last season in the SportPesa Cup, in a friendly, I played in that and scored there.
Marco Silva, he’s a very good manager. I enjoy working under him and I think he gets the best out of me.
Everyone has to believe in themselves. If they’re a first-team player, even if you’re an academy player, you just have to believe in yourself and hopefully you can get a chance.

It’s always positive to see young Everton starlets go away on loan moves with potential to realise and ambition to return a stronger player, and I’m glad to see Broadhead has all the right motivations driving him.
At 21, Broadhead is getting to the point where if he is to make an impact it is now, and while being in League One doesn’t exactly bode well right now, he still has time if he continues to develop quickly into a solid player.
