Hallam Hope’s loan spell with Bury FC was a memorable time for the 20 years old forward as he made an impact with the League Two club by scoring 5 goals in 7 appearances but Hope now has to return to Everton as his loan contract with Bury finished.
The head coach of Bury, Flitcroft declared his intentions of working with the young attacker once more and will try to work with Hope on an extended period of time.
“He’s different to what’s out there. I would love to be able to work with Hallam once more and he knows that. I will try to speak with Everton manager Roberto Martinez and see if we can do something because he is certainly a player that the supporters buy into’’.
“Hallam epitomizes what we’re trying to do here He’s elusive and bright. Most Academy players want to play that new number 10 role, they want to get on the ball and show how good they are. But Hallam loves getting in behind and hurting center-halves and he’s done that. He wants to learn and get better, and I think he’s in the right environment here.
Hallam managed to make an immediate impact with Bury FC when he managed to score a league hat-trick during the club’s match against Portsmouth as Hope became the first Bury player to complete that task since Ian Lawson back in 1999.
Everton is fighting for a Europa League spot for the upcoming season and could boost their squad by adding new players in the club but this can only occur with a cash injection which is a possibility if Martinez decides on selling Hallam Hope or keeping Romelu Lukaku on an extended period of time.
Lukaku is playing on a loan deal from Chelsea and has enjoyed a successful time in Everton as he is the top goal-scorer of the club and Roberto Martinez has already expressed his ambition of signing Lukaku on a permanent deal
