EVERTON DEFENDER SHANE Duffy has joined Championship club Yeovil Town on loan.

The Ireland U21 international has been handed limited opportunities in the Toffees first team and, after playing just three times last season, the Derry native has yet to feature under Roberto Martinez this term.

He has previously had loan spells at Burnley and Scunthorpe and will move to The Glovers, lying third from bottom in the Championship, for one month initially.

“When we knew Shane was available for loan we immediately enquired about bringing him to Huish Park,” Yeovil boss Gary Johnson told the club’s website.

“With one of our centre backs injured and another suspended we didn’t want to turn down the opportunity of signing Shane.

“This signing suits all parties and as always we are very grateful to Everton Football Club.”

Duffy links up with fellow Irish players Paddy Madden and Kevin Dawson. This evening, he tweeted:
