Korede Adedoyin has put pen to paper on his first professional contract for Everton.
Adedoyin scored 11 goals in 17 U18 Premier League (North) matches last season, helping Everton Under-18s achieve a third-place finish.
The 18-year-old, who joined the Blues’ Academy aged 10, says the welcoming, challenging environment at the Club has helped him to develop as a player and a person.
“I’m so happy to sign this contract,” Adedoyin told evertonfc.com. “I am very grateful to all the Academy coaches who have helped me become who I am today.
“The likes of Sean Lundon, Paul Tait and Keith Southern have been fantastic for me.
“Everton has helped me a lot not just on the pitch, but off the pitch, too.
“Now I just want to repay the belief they have shown in me, work as hard as I can and continue to progress.”
