Everton trials for Botafogo defender Gerson

Botafogo defender Gerson has joined Everton on trial.

The 17 year-old hopes to do enough to convince Everton to sign him in January.

He cannot move until his 18th birthday on January 7. He has a contract with the Rio de Janeiro side until 2012, but Botafogo will accept bids of about £900,000, says the Daily Mail.

Gerson impressed recently on a tour of Holland with his club's youth team and has since been training with the seniors.
