Galloway Signs On
Teenage defender arrives from MK Dons.
Everton have today completed the signing of defender Brendan Galloway from MK Dons for an undisclosed fee.
The 18-year-old has penned a four-year contract at Goodison Park and will now join up with the Club's Under-21s.
The England youth international became MK Dons' youngest ever first-team player when he made his debut against Nantwich Town in November 2011 aged just 15.
In total, he made 17 appearances for the League One club and scored once – in a 4-1 FA Cup first-round victory over Halifax Town last season.
"It means an awful lot to me coming to such a great Club," Galloway said. "I'm now looking forward to learning off some of the more senior players - the likes of Sylvain Distin and Phil Jagielka.
"I've been watching them for years now and they're great professionals, great players - players who have been there and done it. That's a big thing for me to be able to learn off guys like that.
"Short-term,I just want to work hard to better myself as a footballer here, which I know I will with the coaches and other staff here.
"Long-term, I also want to get in the Everton team and play week in and week out in the Premier League and play in a team that's doing well, which I know we will do."
