Everton Forward Elise Hughes Has Joined Bristol City Loan


Everton forward Elise Hughes has joined Bristol City Women on loan until the end of the season.

A full Wales international, 18-year-old Hughes has made four WSL appearances for Willie Kirk’s side this term except will now spend the remainder of 2019/20 in the South West.

Everton manager Willie Kirk said: “This loan move is part of Elise’s long-term development at Everton and will be a chance for her to gain more experience in WSL.”

Hughes could get her first taste of action for Tanya Oxtoby’s side when they travel to Manchester United on Sunday.

Academy product and lifelong Evertonian Hughes signed her first professional contract with the Blues in August last year, agreeing terms until the summer of 2021.
