Blues Sign Silva

by Matthew Gamble @efc_mattgamble

Everton have signed striker Joao Silva from Portuguese side Desportivo Das Aves.

Blues officials flew to Portugal this week to conclude the transfer and the 20-year-old has now penned a three-year deal, signing for an undisclosed fee.

Last season Silva was the second top scorer in the Liga Vitalis, Portugal's second tier.

The 6'2" forward scored 14 goals in 32 appearances for Aves last term, which was his first season since graduating to the professional ranks.

Silva has played for his country's Under-20 side and is highly rated in his homeland.

He will now move to Merseyside before linking up with the Everton squad when they reconvene at the start of July for the pre-season tour to Australia.
