Everton complete deal for Oldham keeper Chris Renshaw

Everton have completed the signing of Oldham Athletic goalkeeper Chris Renshaw.

The Toffees are in the market for a new No.1 following Tim Howard's departure, but this move is more one for the future, as they've signed 18-year-old Chris Renshaw from Oldham.

The teenager broke onto the Latics' bench last season and his form at youth level drew the attention of Everton scouts.

“I'm really excited for the challenge," he told the club's website. “I know about the record of how many players Everton have brought through the Academy. That interested me a lot because there seems to be a serious pathway to the first team.

“Every time we played friendlies at Everton, I always used to say the training ground and facilities would make this an amazing club to be at.

“This is a step up but I'm looking forward to it. For me, this year is a development stage, so it's about trying to get that regular football in the Under-21s."
