Everton have swooped for Irish prospect Stephen Kinsella.

The 15 year-old will sign a scholarship deal with the Blues ahead of the 2014/15 campaign.

The Ireland Under-17 international joins from Dublin-based Templeogue United.

Everton academy manager Alan Irvine told evertonfc.com: "I am delighted Stephen will be joining us. He is a very talented player who was wanted by many other Clubs and who has decided to come to Everton.

"He's a winger who has the ability to go past players and we are very much looking forward to working with him."
