Everton fullback Ibou Touray has penned pro terms.
The full-back, 18, has put pen-to-paper on a one-year deal – the fifth youngster this summer to agree senior terms.
Touray told evertontv: “I was on trial at Liverpool for three months and I played against Everton. A few days later my dad got a phone call asking if I wanted to sign a scholarship. I said yes because I thought it was a better choice than Liverpool.
“I’m delighted [to get a professional deal]. I came from playing Sunday league three years ago, so it’s a good achievement in such a short space of time.”
