Yesterday we brought you a report from Holland that KV Kortrijk were interested in Everton youngster Fraser Hornby this summer.
Het Laatste Nieuws reported the Jupiler Pro League side were hoping to sign the 19-year-old Scot on loan for the campaign, although it wasn’t made clear if it was just a simple loan or one with an option to buy.
Nonetheless, it was stated the Hornby was going to take a look at Kortrijk’s facilities and then decide whether he wanted to join them or not.
Het Laatste Nieuws add to the story today and say that Hornby has already spoken to Kortrijk manager Yves Vanderhaeghe about making a move to Belgium.
The newspaper doesn’t add any more detail than that, but the fact that Hornby is talking to Kortrijk’s coach further emphasises the interest is there, and they’re keen to sign the Scottish youngster.
There’s no mention of talks with Everton, or if the Toffees would be happy to let Hornby head to Belgium.
The 19-year-old is one of the higher-rated prospects in their academy but isn’t part of their first-team plans at present, so they’d likely be keen on sending him out to get first-team football.
And with a Championship move now off the cards, the Jupiler League could be a good option for him at this point.
