Everton boss Lampard puts Garner on notice for West Ham

Everton boss Frank Lampard says James Garner could feature against West Ham tomorrow.

Lampard did not call upon the former Manchester United midfielder for the Merseyside derby against Liverpool earlier this month, but after a fortnight of training with his new teammates he has confirmed Garner is in the running to make his debut on Sunday when West Ham visit Goodison Park.

Lampard said: “He has trained really well. I’m a big fan of his and really pleased we managed to bring him to the club because I watched him a lot, particularly last season.

“I like his attributes a lot as a midfield player, really happy to meet him as a lad and he’s trained really hard. He’s now fit for selection and gives us another type of option in midfield with his qualities.”
