Branthwaite has scored a goal for the club who fell against Chelsea in their first Premier League start last season in December.
He was also sent off in May and received his marching orders just 18 minutes after Everton’s 3-2 defeat by Brentford at Goodison Park when he brought down Ivan Toney, who was in goal.
