Moyes hints at Shane Duffy loan move

3 November 2010  Written by Ronan

http://greenscene.me/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/shaneduffy2.jpg">

After previously deciding not to send 18 year old Irish defender Shane Duffy out on loan, Everton manager David Moyes has indicated a change of heart, in order for the youngster to get more first team experience and develop as a player.

Two weeks ago, Moyes had turned down a loan move from nPower League Two side Northampton Town for the player, but is hoping a team from a higher division will come in for the player. Id like to put Shane out on loan, Moyes told the Liverpool Echo. Duffy made his return to the Everton squad two weeks ago following his freak injury during training with the Republic of Ireland senior side in May. Weve been keeping an eye on him at first  and keeping him indoors. Hes very good in the air though, and could have come on against Crouch. If we find the right club he could go on loan.

Duffy is a former Northern Ireland youth international, playing 3 games for the under-21s and one match with the Northern Ireland B squad. However, when he converted to the Republic of Ireland in February, he faced strong criticism from the IFA and the Northern Irish manager Nigel Worthington. Shane has represented Northern Ireland at every age group right up until seniors, said Worthington. He went to Italy with the squad last year and was the only one to miss out on a cap. Sadly we received a letter from Everton on behalf of Shane Duffy stating that he no longer wants to represent Northern Ireland; he wants to represent the Republic.

From my point of view it is disappointing because Shane is going to be a very, very, very good player and he is going to be a big loss to us. As I put him in the squad word came back that he doesnt want to represent Northern Ireland. He has clearly stated that he has made his decision with his family that he wants to represent the Republic of Ireland.

Duffys conversion came in part because of the intervention of former Ireland assistant manager Liam Brady. Liam Brady phoned me a few weeks ago and spoke to me about my international future, Duffy said in February after his switch, We had a chat. I thought about it and spoke to a few people before making my decision. Its crazy to think that someone like Liam Brady would phone me to speak to me and obviously it means a lot to me. I cant wait to get involved now because it is a dream to play for the Republic of Ireland.

Everyone in my family is Irish and so am I. We are just living in Northern Ireland. I have always wanted to play for the Republic. I grew up supporting Ireland and so did everybody around me.

If not for his injury in May, Duffy may have already represented the Irish senior team, but just last month he played for the Republic of Ireland under-19s in their http://greenscene.me/2010/10/live-commentary-ireland-u19-v-serbia-u19/ - Euro 2011 Qualifying Campaign .

When you see Greg Cunningham at Leicester and Conor Clifford at Plymouth, and with Everton having a full squad again you'd think that Duffy has to go on loan. Hopefully he'll get a Championship club.

IRELAND hopeful Shane Duffy could be in line for a loan move to Championship side Preston as Everton boss David Moyes wants the defender to get first team games -- and that could see Derry lad Duffy form a partnership with Ireland star Sean St Ledger.

Duffy has played a number of reserve team games for Everton this season following his recovery from a serious injury which he sustained in a training game with the Irish squad last May.

And there was a boost for Duffy when he made the bench for Everton's Premier League game with Tottenham two weeks ago, though he has failed to make the match-day squad for the two games since then.

LOAN

Moyes wants Duffy -- who played twice for Everton in the Europa League last season -- to get game time and that could see him move on loan to Preston.

Their manager, Darren Ferguson, is a long-time admirer of Duffy and he is due to watch the 18-year-old in action for the Toffees reserves against Arsenal tonight before making his mind up on a loan offer.

Duffy is keen to get his club career moving following his recovery from that horrific training ground injury with Ireland last season which almost cost the youngster his life after he damaged his liver in a collision with goalkeeper Adrian Walsh.

Last month Duffy made progress on the international front when he played for the Ireland U19s in their European Championship qualifiers, his first time to officially play for the Republic since his decision to 'defect' from Northern Ireland.

I think it was actually 4-1 to Arsenal.

In addition to the revelation of a potential loan move to Preston, some of you might be interested to hear that Alan Stubbs included Duffy, along with Jos Baxter and Ross Barkley, as one to look out for next season at Everton. He noted that Duffy is beginning to return to form after the operation. Stubbs was answering questions from fans on Everton's official webchat.

Shane Duffys Barnsley loan move falls through

26 November 2010  Written by Ronan

Everton and Republic of Ireland youth defender Shane Duffys proposed emergency loan move to Barnsley has collapsed after his parent club could not agree terms with Barnsley.

http://greenscene.me/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/shaneduffyevertontraining.jpg">

Mark Robins had hoped to sign the 18 year old centre back for Championship side Barnsley, and Duffy himself had expected the move to go through before tomorrows games. Robins had watched Duffy in action for Everton reserves against Liverpool reserves, and was impressed enough to make an offer for the player.

Duffys father, Brian Duffy spoke to the Derry Journal about the breakdown of the loan move. After David Moyes rang Shane on Wednesday morning last to say that Mark Robins wanted to take him on a months loan, Shane was thrilled because at this stage of his football career he has got to play more first team games at a higher level than he is with Everton Reserves, said Duffy senior. Unfortunately this morning [yesterday morning] Shane got word that Everton and Barnsley couldnt agree terms and the deal had fallen through. David Moyes has turned down approaches for him from Northampton twice already, but weve been told that Leeds are still keen on signing him on loan, as are Southampton.

With the loan window now closed, Duffy will have to wait until January for a loan to get first team experience. Its probably not that bad when we think of what he has gone through this year,said Brian Duffy, optimistic that his son will find a team when the window reopens. It just wasnt meant to be but were confident the right club will come in for him sooner rather than later.

Duffy Joins Burnley On Loan

Everton defender Shane Duffy has joined Championship promotion hopefuls Burnley on a 28-day emergency loan deal.

Duffy, who is currently away on international duty with the Republic of Ireland Under-21s, will link up with the Clarets on his return from Portugal.

The 19-year-old centre half, who has been an unused substitute for David Moyes' side eight times this season, could make his debut against Ipswich Town at Turfmoor on April 2.

The move is Duffy's first loan move. The Irishman has made two appearances for the Everton senior side, making his debut against AEK Athens in 2009.

Duffy sticking by Republic call

By Aidan Fitzmaurice

Everton defender Shane Duffy insists there's no way he'll turn his back on the Republic of Ireland to throw in his lot with Northern Ireland.

The Derry native is having a busy week as he started in central defence for David Moyes' side in Monday's friendly against Bohemians in Dublin and then lined out for the Toffees reserves against West Brom yesterday.

Duffy hopes to seal a loan deal later this week so he can gain first team football.

He will be back in the Republic next month, for the opening game of the U21 European Championship qualifying campaign for Noel King's side, and the 19-year-old says there's no doubt about his international allegiance.

Recently the IFA have recruited former Northern Ireland star, Gerry Armstrong, to try and stem the tide of Northern-born players defecting to the Republic, an issue even more relevant given the recent decision of Sunderland's new signing, Derry man James McClean, to turn down a place in Northern Ireland’s squad and try his luck with the Republic.

But Duffy says any contact from Armstrong in his direction will be a wasted effort.

“People have their opinions but I have made my decision about who I want to play international football for and there's no doubt in my mind, not for one second,” says Duffy, who automatically qualifies for the Republic as his dad, Brian, is from Donegal.

“I don't want to upset people but I just want to play and so does James McClean.

“There's no point in the IFA trying to get me back, playing for the Republic is a decision I wanted to make since I was a kid. I've made that decision now and I'm delighted with it.

“I know there's even more debate about players switching from the North to the Republic since James said he wanted to play for the Republic.

“I know James and I'm delighted for him with the move to Sunderland and his decision to go with the Republic, hopefully he can get into the Sunderland team and then go on with the Republic's senior squad.”

Duffy, who has made two first-team appearances for Everton, showed what he can do in Monday's friendly against Bohemians but he accepts that he needs to go out on loan to get games.

“There are a few clubs interested at the moment so it's down to the manager and what he wants me to do but it looks like I'll be heading out on loan,” he added.

Well, Duffy has dealt well with two of the strongest attacking forces in the EPL thus far, as well as being S****horpe's standout defender during his loan spell. He is a leader, an organiser. If you can get your hands on the full game against Villa yesterday you'll see that his positioning was near impeccable, but he had that awareness even when he was 17 when he played in the Europa League.

He's made a good start and his quality is there for all to see. Those who have been watching him for longer than just one game are aware of his capability.

Dont forget Clark,a regular with Villa and centre back is supposed to be his best position.Good to see a few look lads making the breakthrough.

 O'Brien from Derby was having a very good season before his injury.hopefully all these lads keep improving and we are well covered for the future.

1 player in ten years at the club? played him for 1 game and got rid so i'll stand by what I said. Some people can't help themselves trolling even on the republic section, the young lad done well and he's Irish! leave you club baggage at the door and give credit were due.

Another good performance in a big game for Everton , if he can stay in the Everton team from now until the end of the season who know's he could be fast tracked into the Ireland set up for the WC 2014 qualifiers! 

Early day's in his career but he's taking his chance at club level now and its great to see Clap

He has'nt a hope of getting into that plane.
The chap is 20 years of age who has only played about 3 games at EPL level.

We have plenty of cover for centre half. Dunne, O'Shea, O'Dea and Sledge.
Also hoping to make the plane will be Ciaran Clark and Marc Wilson another 2 players who have experience of playing at centre half.

If he keeps playing and keep developing his game he may get a squad place for the WC qualifiers.

You underestimate his quality. Sometimes higher quality trumps lesser quality coupled with experience.

When he was in the training camp squad he started at CB alongside O'Dea and he was by far the stand out performer until injury struck.

In terms of quality at CB, I rate him higher than O'Dea, Wilson and St Ledger, at least. Experience is all that goes against him, but how does one gain that?

This season, at 20, he was the mainstay in Scun thorpe's defence and since returning to Everton, he has played well alongside a World Cup finalist, at some stages even looking like the senior partner with the amount of organising he does.

He has plenty of time on his side.

I was at that match, and no he wasn't the stand-out performer actually.
He was also playing CM and not LB as you say.

He's too young and he's too inexperienced and he has plenty of time on his side.

Trap will not pick him due to the reasons above and also he has not really been involved in the senior side.

Trap already knows his 23.

The lad  has real talent there no doubt about that and trap is a fan.Hopefully now he will remain injury free and Moyes keep faith with him.If he could get that bit of luck that is needed to make it at the top level Duffy could be a huge player for ireland and everton for years to come.

CM? LB? You must have been at a different couple of games. He was at CB. With O'Dea. McShane at RB and Greg Cunningham at LB.  And he was 18 at that stage.

When he was 17, he already had 2 European games under his belt, as well as 3 U21 caps for Northern Ireland. Trap included him in a training camp at 18 with little experience.

He is 20 now, in a much better position than he was then, with more experience. He has 6 U21 caps 1 goal. 19 games for S****horpe, 1 goal. 1 game for Burnley and 4 games for Everton. That's not a career of experience, granted, but who said you needed a specified amount?

This mantra of being too young and inexperienced to be selected doesn't always hold water.

I think the chances of him making the Euros squad are slim, but stranger things have happened.

Great prospect but Trap already has his centre backs. He won't trust anyone other than Dunne, Sledge, O'Dea, O'Shea or at worst Kelly.

The reality for Duffy is that there is not a fooking hope of making the plane. So you need to get a reality check and stop talking like there is.

I like Duffy as I believe that he has a very bright future ahead of him, but his time will come.
I would say there is at least 8 players ahead of him at the moment.

Trap is not going to pick him as he said himself that there will be little chance in the squad of 23.

Woah, hold on a minute. I need a reality check and I need to stop talking like there is a possibility? Perhaps you should stop to read what I've written.

Let's look at the actual reality: Duffy is a 20 year old Irish centre back who has been impressing in his baptism of fire at Everton. Prior to that he was S****horpe's best defender. He has an abundance of international experience, he has played in the Europa League. That is the reality.

Having seen quite a lot of him, I believe Duffy is already a quality player and that he is better than O'Dea, St Ledger and Wilson in the CB position.  Relative to those guys however, he lacks experience and hasn't worked with Trapattoni since May 2010 when he almost died on the pitch.

I merely don't like to rule out possibilities. Anything could happen. I have also acknowledged Trap's comments and think that it's unlikely that Duffy will be in the squad.

The only possibility of Duffy making it to the Euro's if the following get injured.

Dunne
St ledger
O'Dea
O'Shea

McShane
Foley

Wilson
Clark

The lads above are all ahead of Duffy - this is the reality.

His time will come though.

Why did he get called into the Everton first team, mores to the point who was/is injured. When are they due back?
