Ellis Simms might not have joined Blackpool until the middle of the January window, but ended as the club’s second top goalscorer following some excellent form in their promotion winning campaign in 2020-21.
The 20-year-old striker, who spent the second half of the season on loan from Everton, struck 10 times in just 21 outings for the Seasiders, including two of the three goals in their crucial first leg win at Oxford in the play-offs.
Simms, who ended up missing the play-off final victory over Lincoln through injury, is back at Everton preparing for the new Premier League season under Rafa Benitez.
However, with the Spaniard boasting a host of attacking talent, another EFL loan move could be a likely option for the 20-year-old, who is yet to get a taste of senior action for the Toffees.
“He did very well at Blackpool but still needs games and goals to kick on, and a big club like Bolton could benefit from his pace and size.”
