Exciting Everton youngster George Green has signed pro terms.
The midfielder, 17, has penned a deal that will keep him at Goodison Park until the summer of 2015.
Signed from Bradford City in October 2011, Green has been a regular for the Blues' Under-18s and has also made three Under-21 appearances this term.
"As soon as I signed for Everton from Bradford I was hoping I'd get to a stage where I earned a pro contract," Green told evertonfc.com. "I've done that, so it feels really good to be honest.
“It's been much harder at Everton than I thought, a much tougher challenge. I'm playing with better players now and it's been really enjoyable.
“I just hope to push on now and hopefully earn another contract again in the future. I can't wait to get going.”
