Jose Baxter, the reserve team captain is to be offered a new two year contract with Everton. The twenty year old has been at Everton since he was six and was supposed to be 'the next big thing'.
Jose became Everton's youngest ever senior player aged 16 years and 191 days, but the young midfielder has found it difficult to get a place in the senior squad only playing a few first team games since then.
Recently though he has been on loan at Tranmere were he impressed and has returned to help the reserve side finish third in the league. In turn Jose has been on the bench for recent first team games against Stoke and Wolves in the Premier League.
Lets hope the contract, which will keep him at Goodison Park until 2014 will inspire him to get himself in the first team.
