"I'm very pleased to have signed Jamie," he said. "He has been with Everton since the age of seven and has an excellent pedigree.
"Jamie is a good size and will provide excellent competition for Glenn Morris. He will be able to learn from being around a first team set-up and it's pleasing to complete another piece of the jigsaw.
"He first came on to our radar from our northern scout watching him for Everton's reserves on a couple of occasions last year and the reports we had were positive.
"He also spent time on trial at Yeovil last season and they were keen to sign him - and the fact that another League One club were in for him shows that he is of good quality."
