Everton begin summer clear-out by selling academy product Kieran Dowell to Norwich

Everton have sold Kieran Dowell to Norwich for an undisclosed fee as they begin their summer clear-out ahead of next season.

The midfielder came through the Toffees academy, joining the club at the age of seven, but made just five first-team appearances as he was sent out on several different loans moves.

Dowell has had four spells in the Championship with Nottingham Forest, Sheffield United, Derby and Wigan.

He managed 10 goals and five assists during his time with Forest in the 2018-19 campaign. 

But he was unable to force his way into the Everton first team and he was sent out on loan once more, joining Sheffield United who were promoted to the Premier League. 

With opportunities at Goodison Park set to be limited again, Dowell joined Derby for the the first half of the 2019-20 campaign. After struggling for game time with the Rams he secured another loan with fellow Championship side Wigan. 

Dowell scored five goals and made three assists during his time at the DW Stadium but his season ended with relegation following the club’s 12-point deduction after entering administration.  

The 22-year-old joins the Canaries on a three-year deal following their relegation to the second tier and said he was delighted to be part of Daniel Farke’s side.

He told ‘There was a bit of interest [from other clubs] towards the end of the season and when Norwich came up, with the history of the club and what they’ve got going on with the boss and the players they’ve got here, I think it was a really good fit for me. 

‘It’s a massive step in my career which is why I had to make sure it’s the right decision for me.’

The Championship season is set to restart on September 12.
