Everton have completed the signing of Brendan Galloway from MK Dons for an undisclosed fee.
The 18-year-old defender agreed a five-year contract and will join Everton’s Under-21s.
Galloway: “It means an awful lot to me coming to such a great Club. I’m now looking forward to learning off some of the more senior players – the likes of Sylvain Distin and Phil Jagielka.
“I’ve been watching them for years now and they’re great professionals, great players – players who have been there and done it. That’s a big thing for me to be able to learn off guys like that.
“Short-term,I just want to work hard to better myself as a footballer here, which I know I will with the coaches and other staff here.
“Long-term, I also want to get in the Everton team and play week in and week out in the Premier League and play in a team that’s doing well, which I know we will do.”
