Tom Davies is hoping that his turn as captain for the England under-21’s will translate to more minutes for club side Everton.

Davies has played just 11 minutes for Marco Silva’s side this term, having fallen behind the likes of Bernard and Gylfi Sigurdsson in the pecking order at Goodison Park.

England’s youngsters made it two wins from two over the international break with Davies leading the charge from midfield, and the 21-year-old has conceded that he hopes Silva was paying attention.

“I’m just doing my best and hopefully I’ve impressed him [Silva]. It’s up to him to see how it goes,” he is quoted as saying by The Telegraph.

“Everton stay in touch. I got a text after the Turkey game from one of the staff so it’s all good. It was positive they were watching and I’m glad they were.”

“I’m not really bothered about where I play as long as I’m out there. I’m enjoying the deeper role.

“It’s been good to go away and get two games under my belt. It’s been good for me. So I’ll be looking forward to getting back to Everton and playing there, hopefully.”
