EPL: Van de Beek tells Lampard his preferred position
Manchester United loanee, Donny van de Beek has told Everton manager, Frank Lampard, his preferred position. Van de Beek said he likes to play in the Premier League as a number eight. The Dutchman joined Everton on loan from Manchester United last month. “I think I can play in different positions and I like to play in the Premier League as a number eight, box-to-box,” Van de Beek told Everton’s official website. “The manager wants me to bring some quality with the ball, to link up in midfield. “He expects a lot from me and I expect a lot from myself. I am really happy with the first two weeks.” Van de Beek will hope to feature for Everton when they take on Southampton in their next fixture on Saturday.
