The defender joined Everton in a deal worth up to £6million two years ago.

Gibson will be out of contract at the end of the season.

The 19-year-old could reportedly be tempted back now Peter Beardsley is no longer a coach at the club.

Beardsley was suspended from football for 32 weeks by the Football Association for making “racist and wholly unacceptable” remarks to Under-23 players.
