A towering keeper,
Hilton joined the Everton academy from Manchester City in 2016.
for both the under-18s and under-23 sides, Hilton's progress was rewarded as he
signed a new one-year deal with the Blues in July 2018.
Neil Young told the club`s website: "When we became aware a few weeks back
that it was unlikely we would be able to extend Paddy’s loan we have been
speaking to a number of Premier League and EFL clubs about the possibility of
loaning one of their young goalkeepers. We are delighted to have been able to
bring Joe to the football club and we are extremely grateful to Everton
Football Club for allowing Joe to continue his development with ourselves until
the end of the season".
