When Blue Kipper interviewed Roberto Martinez before the end of the season, we asked about Luke Garbutt and his new contract negotiations.
The Everton manager said: "As a football club we've done everything we should have done. We've acted with class. We've always wanted to keep Luke Garbutt."
The fact that Garbutt was left out of the last two games as Brenden Galloway made his Everton debut, pointed to the fact that Luke had chosen to leave Everton and either Swansea or Bournmouth would be his likely destination.
While the Everton left back was helping England Under 21's win against Sweden at the weekend, news has been filtering through that he will now sign a new 5 year contract with Everton and go out on a season loan to Bournemouth.
Nothing has been confirmed by the club and most probably won't until the European Under 21 tournament is over, but it all sounds like a good outcome.
