Adam Jones has now dropped some fresh updates on perfect deal for Everton involving a proposed new contract for Lewis Warrington.
Warrington’s current contract at Goodison Park expires in the summer, although he is apparently in talks for a new one.
He’s now on loan at Tranmere Rovers in League Two, where he’s appeared in 12 games and scored one goal and assisted on another.
Jones has revealed that talks between Warrington and his representatives over a potential new deal are ‘ongoing’, and that granting him one would make ‘perfect’ sense given his progression this season, in a Q&A session for The Liverpool Echo. While replying to a fan in a Q&A session for The Liverpool Echo, Jones said:
“We believe that talks are ongoing with Lewis and his representatives over a potential new deal – which would make perfect sense after seeing the progression he’s made this season! Frank Lampard could easily be a big fan in the future, we’ll have to wait and see.”
Warrington certainly deserves a new contract given his performances for Tranmere this campaign.
The central midfield player has ranked in the top 10 among his new teammates in terms of aerial duels won, tackles, interceptions, clearances, shots, key passes, dribbles, long balls and through balls per game despite being just 19 years of age.
He has helped the club reach ninth place in the table, where they are just one point off of the play-off places with five games left to play.
Nonetheless, should the worst happen and the Merseyside club end up relegated from the Premier League, they could then use Warrington in the first team to help further his development.
