Ryan Ledson has joined Oxford United on a permanent basis for an undisclosed fee.
The Netherton-born midfielder, who joined the Blues’ Academy aged five, has signed a three-year deal with the League One outfit.
Having previously been named on the first-team bench on a handful of occasions, Ledson made his senior Toffees debut aged 17 in the Europa League group game against FC Krasnodar in December 2014.
He joined Cambridge United on loan in November 2015, picking up the Man of the Match prize on his debut against Accrington Stanley and going on to make a further 27 appearances for the League Two side.
Ledson now joins fellow Everton Academy product John Lundstram, who was named Oxford’s captain ahead of the 2016/17 season, at the Kassam Stadium.
Everton Football Club would like to wish Ryan all the best for the future.
