Luke Samuel Garbutt (born 21 May 1993) is an English professional footballer who plays for Everton as a defender.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Born in Harrogate, he began his professional career with Leeds United and was signed from their academy by Everton in 2009, for an initial fee of £600,000 which was set by a tribunal as the two clubs could not agree a fee.[3]

In the 2012–13 season, on 29 August 2012, Garbutt made his Everton debut, coming on at half-time during a 5–0 League Cup second round win over Leyton Orient.[4]

Ahead of the 2013–14 season, Garbutt signed a new contract with Everton, that will keep him until 2015.[5]

Garbutt made his Premier League debut for Everton at Southampton in April[6] and built on that with his first ever appearance for England's Under-21s in a 3-1 European Championship qualifying win over Wales the 19th of May 2014.[7] He started in a 2-0 victory away to Wolfsburg which sealed Everton's qualification in top position from their Europa League group on November 27th.

Loan to Cheltenham Town[edit]

On 29 September 2011, he joined Cheltenham Town on an initial one month loan deal.[8] He made his professional debut as Cheltenham beat Wycombe Wanderers 3–1 on 4 October 2011 in the Football League Trophy.[9] His FA Cup debut was memorable as Cheltenham were drawn away to Premier League team Tottenham Hotspur, however the game ended 3–0 to Tottenham.[10] He continued to extend his loan spell and on 31 January 2012 he scored his first goal, with a free kick in a 3–1 win away to Macclesfield, sending Cheltenham to the top of the league in the process.[11] He scored again the following game, this time opening the scoring against Crawley Town with a goal from outside of the area.[12] On 13 February he extended his loan spell by a further five weeks.[13]

Loan to Colchester United[edit]

On 13 September 2013, Garbutt joined League One side Colchester United on an initial 28 day loan.[14] He made his debut the following day, in a 2–2 draw against Bradford City at Valley Parade.[15] On 28 January 2014, Everton recalled Garbutt from his loan spell at Colchester United following the lengthy injury to Bryan Oviedo.[16]

International career[edit]

Garbutt has represented England at under-16, under-17, under-18 and under-19 level.[17]

He made his England U-16 début against Germany in March 2008 and made his final England U-16 appearance against Scotland in November 2008. Four months earlier, he had made his England U-17 début against Finland.

He helped England win the 2010 UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship and played in the final where England beat Spain 2–1.[18]

On 17 May 2013, he was named in manager Peter Taylor's provisional squad for the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup.[19] Initially he did not make the final 21-man squad, however after Leeds United defender Sam Byram pulled out through injury he was named as a replacement in the squad.[20] He made his debut on 16 June, in a 3–0 win in a warm-up game against Uruguay.[21]

On 11 August, he was called up to the England under-21 squad to replace Southampton left-back Luke Shaw, for the friendly match against Scotland.[22] Garbutt was an unused substitute as England won the game 6–0.[23]
