Blues Sign Youngster Markelo

Everton have completed the signing of Netherlands Under-18 international Nathangelo Markelo from Dutch second division side FC Volendam.

The 18-year-old, who can play at centre-back, right-back or as a right wing-back, has penned a three-year deal with the Blues to the summer of 2020.

Markelo, who will link up with David Unsworth’s Under-23s side, told “It feels great to be an Everton player. It’s a nice opportunity for me and I love it here already. 


“I heard something about two weeks ago after a tournament I played in and I was very happy. I decided immediately that I wanted to come to Everton. 

“I’m looking forward to the season now. I have three years here and I hope to get plenty of playing time, develop as a player and then just keep making steps forward towards the first team.”
