Kyle John

Kyle John signed a two-and-a-half year contract with Everton in March 2019 after his seamless transition from Under-18 to Under-23 football at the tender age of 17.

The right-back, who joined Everton's Academy as a six-year-old, also had his first taste of senior action in 2018/19, playing as a substitute in the Blues' Goodison Park SportPesa Trophy victory over Gor Mahia from Kenya.

He continued to shine for Everton Under-23s the following season, mixing polished defending with dynamic runs into the final third. His crossing ability also consistently caught the eye.

John regularly featured in training sessions with Carlo Ancelotti's Everton first team during the 2019/20 campaign.

Contracted until: June 2021
