‘It would be a big step up’ – Stoke striker’s father hints at move to his former club: Opinion



Everton legend Kevin Campbell has hinted that his son Tyrese could follow in his footsteps by walking out in the famous blue shirt at Goodison Park.

The 19-year-old, who is currently on loan at Shrewsbury from Stoke, has recently been named as the EFL’s Young Player of the Month for March, and it was his dad’s response that has led to some speculation about a move to the club where his dad spent six years between 1999 and 2005 for the young forward.

After Campbell senior tweeted of his pride at his son’s award, a number of Everton fans replied by asking him if there was a chance of a move to Everton for the 19-year-old, leading to Campbell providing a cryptic response.

So with his father hinting at a move to Goodison Park, could that be a potential destination for the younger Campbell in the future? We asked some of our Football League World for their thoughts.

George Harbey

“It certainly makes sense, so I wouldn’t be too surprised to see a deal materialise in the future.

“Campbell is obviously an Everton legend and he would love his son to ply his trade for the Toffees one day.

“His son is currently impressing in League One and also caught the eye at the beginning of Jones’ tenure at Stoke, so he is one for the future for sure.”

Chris Gallagher

“It would be a big step up.
“Campbell is doing well out on loan but he is playing in League One and the focus should be on getting into the Stoke team next season.
“At his age it should be about playing regularly and that’s not going to happen at Goodison Park. He needs a good season with the Potters and then talk of a move to a good Premier League side will be justified. “
Toby Wilding
“At 19-years-old, Campbell still has plenty to learn in the game.
“He has however shown plenty of potential, and if he continues in this way club’s higher up the pyramid will come calling.
“Given the obvious connection, this is a destination that could make sense.”
Jacob Potter
“He’s an exciting talent.
“Campbell has got a bright future ahead of him and has really impressed me with Shrewsbury this season.
“Having already scored for Stoke’s first-team, he’s shown that he can make the step up to first-team football.
“Everton could prove to be the perfect destination for him this summer.”
