Shane Duffy has joined Blackburn Rovers on a permanent deal for an undisclosed fee.
The defender, 22, has signed an three-year deal at Ewood Park.
Central defender Duffy departs Everton having made 10 senior appearances - six of which were as a substitute.
He joined the Club’s academy aged 16 and made his first team debut against AEK Athens in December 2009.
After a serious injury while on international duty which saw him require life-saving surgery, he resumed his career with a loan spell at Scunthorpe.
He was recalled early by David Moyes and made a Premier League debut in January 2012.
But he wasn’t able to nail down a regular starting spot under Moyes or successor Roberto Martinez and was loaned to Yeovil for the 2013/14 season, making his senior international debut earlier this summer.
