Everton boss, Carlo Ancelotti, is promoting two players from the club’s youth setup to first-team training.

Jarrad Branthwaite and Joao Virginia got the chance to show their skills in training this week, per the Liverpool Echo.

Ancelotti has a chance to test some players in the remaining games of the season.

The club are well clear of the relegation zone, while they are unlikely to battle for a Europa League place.

Branthwaite is a 17-year-old ball playing defender who can also play in midfield.

Virginia is a goalkeeper from Portugal who struggled during a loan spell at Reading.

Despite that poor spell, Virginia is highly rated at Finch Farm, with under-23s coach David Unsworth recently praising him.
