Barkley returns from Leeds loan

Barkley returns from Leeds loan

Ross Barkley has once again returned to Everton following the end of a loan spell to the Championship.

Earlier this season the 19-year-old joined Sheffield Wednesday and impressed during his two month loan spell, winning the player of the month award, making 13 appearances and scoring 4 goals.

He returned to Everton in November and offered cover to David Moyes following a spate of a few injuries and he went on to make a couple of Premier League appearances from the bench, playing around half an hour in total against Stoke and Chelsea.

Barkley then went back out on loan and joined Leeds United a month ago, he made four appearances, before losing his place in the side this week for the game against Middlesbrough.

'I spoke to David Moyes at Everton,' said Leeds boss Neil Warnock to

He continued: He wants him to play and I couldn't guarantee him that.

'He's done well, he's a smashing player, but he needs to play games and I can't guarantee that.'

While it was probably disappointing to have lost his place in the Leeds squad, Barkley still believes that gaining experience at Championship level is helping him develop.

Barkley told EvertonTV: 'It was good to get the experience during the month I was there.

'I've learnt a lot about the game this season so I feel like I've progressed.'
