Luke Samuel Garbutt (born 21 May 1993) is an English professional footballer who plays as a defender for Oxford United, on loan from Everton.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Born in Harrogate, North Yorkshire,[1] Garbutt attended Harrogate Grammar School where he played in the Year 7 School Football team that reached the Harrogate and District Cup Final in 2005. His impressive performances for his junior club team, Pannal Ash Juniors, saw him signed by Leeds United where he began his professional career. Shortly after leaving school, he 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] He was loaned to Cheltenham Town during the 2011–12 season.

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

Ahead of the 2013–14 season, Garbutt signed a new two-year contract with Everton,[5] and during the season went to Colchester United on loan.

Garbutt made his Premier League debut as a late substitute at Southampton in April 2014[6] and built on that with his first appearance for England's Under-21s in a 3–1 European Championship qualifying win over Wales the following month.[7]

Loan to Cheltenham Town[edit]

In 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; the game ended 3–0 to Tottenham.[10] He continued to extend his loan spell and on 31 January 2012 scored his first goal, a free kick in a 3–1 win away at Macclesfield, sending Cheltenham to the top of the league in the process.[11] He scored again in the following game, netting the opening goal against Crawley Town from outside 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 following the lengthy injury to Bryan Oviedo.[16]

Everton[edit]

After making his first start for the club at the beginning of the 2014–15 season in a League Cup defeat to Swansea City in September,[17] Garbutt started the final two UEFA Europa League group stage games, helping Everton finish top of the group with a clean sheet in a 2–0 win away to Wolfsburg.[18] Garbutt was part of the starting 11 in both legs of the Europa League round of 16 tie against Swiss side BSC Young Boys in February, Everton progressing 7–2 on aggregate.[19][20] This was the beginning of an extended run in the first team for Garbutt, starting in the following Premier League game against Arsenal,[21] taking advantage of an injury to regular left-back Leighton Baines to maintain his place in the starting 11.[22]

On 30 June 2015, Everton announced that Garbutt had signed new five-year deal with the club.[23]

Loan spells[edit]

On 25 July 2015, Garbutt was loaned to Championship side Fulham for the 2015–16 season.[24] He scored his first goal for Fulham in a 2–2 draw with Bolton Wanderers on 19 December 2015.[25] On 16 August 2016, Garbutt returned to the Championship, joining newly promoted Wigan Athletic on a four-and-a-half-month loan.[26] On 2 July 2018, Garbutt joined League One club Oxford United on a season-long loan.[27]

International career[edit]

Garbutt has represented England at under-16, under-17, under-18 and under-19 level.[28]

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.[29]

On 17 May 2013, he was named in manager Peter Taylor's provisional squad for the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup.[30] Initially he did not make the final 21-man squad, but after Leeds United defender Sam Byram pulled out through injury he was named as his replacement.[31] He made his debut on 16 June, in a 3–0 win in a warm-up game against Uruguay.[32]

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.[33] Garbutt was an unused substitute as England won the game 6–0.[34]
