Gibson, who has been part of the England Under-20 side who have competed in the Under-20 Elite League this season, is yet to reach the heights which both he and Everton felt were possible but, at just 19 years old, the two Dutch giants see the chance to help him progress to the next level.
He was part of Everton's pre-season squad and actually enjoyed a number of fairly impressive showings, including grabbing a goal in a 3-1 loss to Mainz 05, but that has not helped him earn a spot in Marco Silva's side.
He is yet to make that breakthrough, and his presence in the senior side's training squad has also seen him lose his place in the Under-23 team. He has started just three games all season and is yet to enjoy an extended run in the side.
Primarily a centre-back, Gibson is also comfortable on the left side of defence, which is where he played during England Under-17's run to World Cup glory back in 2017.
