Everton have signed promising youngster Matthew Kennedy from Kilmarnock for a nominal fee.

The 17-year-old winger has penned a three-year deal and will join up with Alan Stubbs’ Under-21 Reserve squad.

The Scotland youth international has impressed in the SPL since making his bow as a 16-year-old.

That debut came against Hibernian in November 2011 after he had forced his way into the first-team picture with an impressive pre-season.

Kennedy, chiefly a wide player, has been used as an emergency frontman in Kille’s opening games of the 2012/13 campaign after injuries to the club’s regular strikers.

In all he has made 14 appearances for the Rugby Park outfit while also starring through the age groups for the Scottish youth international sides.

Having represented his country at under-15 and under-16 level with considerable success, he has been a regular for the under-17s, making 13 appearances and scoring four times.
