The Dutch international moved to Everton on loan until the end of the season on the final day of the winter transfer window.

Frank Lampard spoke about Donny’s quality and durability ahead of his team’s trip to Southampton on Saturday. Frank told reporters that he was very impressed with him. according to Lampard on a professional level, since speaking with him he arrives and Frank sees Donny van de Beek training, Frank is absolutely impressed with his fitness and his game edge. “When you watch a workout, it doesn’t surprise you.” Lampard said.

When Frank reminisces about the time he had with Man Utd, Donny is a top notch player. He was when Man Utd signed him and he was at Ajax. It is not simple. There are different ways to react and the Everton manager is sure it was tough. Donny showed that if you keep your head up and keep working, they can get through it.

A little about Donny van de Beek

Man Utd initially forked £35m to sign Donny from Ajax in the summer of 2020, tying him to a five-year deal. Donny van de Beek has since only managed two goals in 50 games in all competitions for the club, with most of those appearances coming as a substitute. There has been speculation that the Dutchman lacks the necessary aggression to succeed in the PL, but he has already begun to hush up his doubters at Everton.

Man Utd played the full 90 minutes of a 3-0 win over Leeds last time and made a stellar contribution both defensively and offensively, with Frank likely to offer him another starting berth against the Saints this weekend.
