Frank Lampard says he has been ‘absolutely impressed’ with Donny van de Beek following his move from Manchester United to Everton.

The 24-year-old barely featured for United following his £35 million arrival from Ajax in 2020 and was allowed to join Everton on loan for the remainder of the season in the closing stages of the January transfer window.

Van de Beek has made two appearances for Everton so far and Lampard has only seen positive signs from the Dutch midfielder following his switch to Goodison Park.

‘I’m really impressed,’ Lampard said when asked about Van de Beek.

‘On a professional level, since speaking to him and coming and seeing him train and play, absolutely impressed with his fitness, his game sharpness.

‘But when you watch him train it doesn’t surprise you.

‘When I think back to the time he’s had at Manchester United, he’s a top level player.

‘He was when Manchester United signed him, he was at Ajax when I went up against him.

‘To have a tough time is not easy, there’s different ways of reacting. I’m sure it was tough, and he shows that if you keep your counsel, keep your head down and keep working in the right way, there’s always a way through it, and people will always respect you for that.

‘Now hopefully there’s a chance for him to just show his talent on a regular basis, and that’s what I hope to see.’
