Eredivisie outfit FC Twente have handed a trial to Everton's young midfielder Bjarni Vidarsson.

The 19-year-old Icelander was highly-rated upon joining The Toffees, but, as yet, he has not fulfilled his potential.

Vidarsson did make his debut last month after coming on as substitute in their Uefa Cup win over AZ Alkmaar, although he remains well down manager David Moyes' pecking order.

Twente, who have Vidarsson's older brother Arnar on their books, are keen to run the rule over the youngster before deciding whether or not to make a move.

Meanwhile, one player who has joined the club is Ibrahim Maaroufi on loan from Internazionale.

The teenage Belgian midfielder, who has Moroccan roots, is looking forward to the chance of playing first-team football.

"I got in contact with FC Twente and really wanted to go back to Holland," the former PSV prospect told the club's official website.

"In Morocco's Olympic squad I play with Karim El Ahmadi and I've spoken with him a lot about Twente.

"It'll take some time to get used to the Eredivisie, but I know for sure that I will get some playing time at Twente."
