First Pro Deal For Adedoyin

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 “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.”
