Donny van de Beek praised

Everton manager Frank Lampard has been impressed by new signing Donny van de Beek since his arrival on loan from Manchester United at the end of the January transfer window.

The article in the Metro says: ‘I’m really impressed,’ Lampard said when asked about Van de Beek.

“On a professional level, since speaking to him and coming and seeing him train and play, absolutely impressed with his fitness, his game sharpness.

“But when you watch him train it doesn’t surprise you. When I think back to the time he’s had at Manchester United, he’s a top level player.

“He was when Manchester United signed him, he was at Ajax when I went up against him.”
