Live Match:

Arsenal (A) Sun 1 Mar 2015, 14:05, Barclays Premier League

by Adam Clark @efc_adamclark

George Green has today agreed his first professional contract with the Club.

The midfielder, 17, has penned a deal that will keep him at Goodison Park until the summer of 2015.

Signed from Bradford City in October 2011, Green has been a regular for the Blues' Under-18s and has also made three Under-21 appearances this term.

An England youth star, the Dewsbury-born teenager has represented his country at Under-16 and Under-17 level and last year scored an injury-time winner against Spain on his international debut.

"As soon as I signed for Everton from Bradford I was hoping I'd get to a stage where I earned a pro contract," Green told evertonfc.com. "I've done that, so it feels really good to be honest.

“It's been much harder at Everton than I thought, a much tougher challenge. I'm playing with better players now and it's been really enjoyable.

“I just hope to push on now and hopefully earn another contract again in the future. I can't wait to get going.”
