Motherwell take Everton starlet Jutkiewicz on loan
Motherwell have signed Everton striker Lukas Jutkiewicz on a six-month loan deal, the club's official website has announced.
The English-born Pole, 20, goes straight into the squad for the trip to Aberdeen in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League this this weekend.
Jutkiewicz started his career with Swindon Town and made his debut in April 2006 when he was just 17.
He was a regular substitute at the start of the 2006/07 season before making his first start of the campaign in a 1-0 defeat by Wycombe Wanderers.
He scored his first ever senior goal at Walsall's Bescot Stadium in December and totalled 13 starts, 20 substitute appearances and five goals throughout the campaign, helping the Robins achieve promotion back to League One.
Jutkiewicz cost Everton for £1million in the close season and was named on the substitutes' bench during the 2007/08 UEFA Cup campaign.
In the January transfer window, he joined Championship side Plymouth on loan until the end of the season.
Jutkiewicz was afforded his first Everton senior appearance in the 3-0 win over Sunderland before again heading out on loan, seeing out the remainder of the campaign with Huddersfield.
He now links up with Everton team-mate John Ruddy at Fir Park, becoming the sixth signing of the summer.
