The young right back made his Premier League debut as a substitute in the last game of last season, and says he wants to stay around at Everton and push for a place in the first team squad.
“It’s the balance,” Kenny said.
“At the end of the day I want to be an Everton player. I want to be in front of the gaffer’s eyes everyday. But if the gaffer wants me to go on loan then you do so but, right now, I want to be at Everton and I want to play for Everton so I think the best place for me to be is at Everton so I can learn off the likes of Seamus and Baines on how to be an Everton player.
“You get the odd occasion and when you do get told to go over [and train with the first team], you have got to take the chance.
“It might not come everyday, it might not come a couple of times a week but when you get that chance you have got to take it with both hands.
“When I do go over I enjoy it and you learn a lot from top players in the team.
“It’s ‘you’re with the first-team today get ready’. I don’t think you need much warning, you want to go and play there, you want to be part of the first-team so when it comes you are made up.
“The sessions are always tough, the quality is a lot different. You’ve got top players in there, a lot of internationals, so when you go over you have got to be on your A game and show the manager, his staff and the other players who good you are.”
