“He has shown energy and enthusiasm, allied to his obvious quality.

“I feel confident all parties will continue to benefit from the loan being extended.

“I would also like to thank Everton for their continued cooperation.”

Chris has been on Everton’s books since he was five-years-old, working his way through The Toffees’ Academy.

He had a spell on loan at Milton Keynes Dons last year and scored on his first appearance in professional football – against Shrewsbury Town in January 2014.

Chris made his Everton debut earlier this season, when he played the final 11 minutes of a Europa League tie against FC Krasnodar as a substitute.

He has represented England at every level from Under-16 to Under-20, playing 13 games and scoring five goals.

He went to the Under-20 World Cup in 2013, playing in two of England’s three matches.
