Stubbs: Everton are happy for duo to return to Brentford

Everton reserve-team coach Alan Stubbs says his club would be happy to see Jake Bidwell and Adam Forshaw return to Brentford next season.

The Premier League outfit are still deciding whether to offer a new contract to left-back Bidwell, who has impressed during his time at Griffin Park.

Rosler wants Bidwell and Forshaw to return to west London.

Midfielder Forshaw has also done well for the Bees, whose manager Uwe Rosler is keen to keep both players.

“Uwe knows the game well and he knows how to treat young players and that’s always a consideration when we’re making any decisions,” Stubbs told West London Sport.

“If we didn’t think Brentford was a good club for Jake then he wouldn’t be there, it’s as simple as that.

“They’ve been first-class in the way they’ve looked after Jake and we’re grateful for that. We’d have no problem in sending any players there in the future.”

Stubbs added: “I have watched Jake a few times for Brentford and he’s done very well. There’s no substitute for playing regularly and Jake’s game will benefit from being involved every weekend.

“Jake is a talented young footballer who, like many before him, has benefited from going out on loan.

“The lads learn more about what football is about when they drop down a division or two and it’s invaluable experience.”
