Everton striker keen to stay with Motherwell

Lukas Jutkiewicz says he would gladly stay another season in the Scottish Premier League should Everton want him to stay.

Lukas Jutkiewicz is willing to delay his return to Everton for a further season to stay at Motherwell, should both clubs be happy for his current loan agreement to continue. The 21-year-old striker has proved a smash hit in the SPL this season, scoring 10 goals as Craig Brown’s team fight for a place in next season’s Europa League.

Jutkiewicz, who has made just one substitute appearance for the Toffees since moving from Swindon Town in 2007, has one year left on his deal at Goodison Park left to run and is expected to return to Merseyside in the summer.

But with Louis Saha, Yakubu, Victor Anichebe and now even 18-year-old Jose Baxter also in contention for a starting slot in attack, Jutkiewicz’s prospects of first team football should he return to England appear slim.

With that in mind, the Southampton-born player says his spell at Motherwell has helped him as a player and he would be willing to spend a second season north of the border.

“I have another year on my contract at Goodison so as far as I'm aware I will go back for pre-season at Everton,” Jutkiewicz told the Daily Record. “But it can all change at any point.

“I've said from the word go I'm happy at Motherwell. And if there was an agreement between the two clubs that would allow me to stay then that would be great.

“I feel I've improved here. Just playing games will improve you naturally. I feel a lot more confident and game-ready.”

LUKAS JUTKIEWICZ'S MOTHERWELL FUTURE

Jutkiewicz came in on loan from Everton in the summer alongside goalkeeper John Ruddy and both have proved crucial as the Steelmen try to either pip Hibernian for a place in Europe next season, or finish fifth and rely on Dundee United winning the Scottish Cup.
