Born in Harrogate, Luke Garbutt began his professional career with Leeds United and was signed from their academy by Everton in 2009, for an initial fee of £600,000 which was set by a tribunal as the two clubs could not agree a fee.

29 August 2012, Garbutt made his Everton debut, coming on at half-time during a 5-0 League Cup second round win over Leyton Orient 

He featured for England at the Under-20s World Cup in June 2013 and signed a new two-year deal at Goodison Park the following month.

In September he switched to Colchester United in League One agreeing a one-month loan deal which was subsequently twice extended until 4 January 2014.

Garbutt was eventually called back from Colchester and made a number of appearances on the Everton bench before being handed a Premier League debut against Southampton in April.

He made his England Under-21 debut in the 3-0 win over Wales the following month.
