Jonjoe Kenny delighted with new Everton deal

Jonjoe Kenny is delighted with his new deal at Everton.

Kenny joined Everton at the age of nine, progressing through the youth setup to captain the Under-21s team and then make his Premier League debut as a substitute against Norwich City in May 2016.

“This contract means the world to me," Kenny told evertonfc.com. “I love this Club and it's where I want to be, so hopefully I can kick on.

“Playing for the first-team at the end of last season was a dream come true and I want more of that.

“My family and all the [Academy] coaches have helped me get this far and now I've got David Unsworth. He's really helped me - I've become fitter and a better player, so I owe him a lot of thanks as well.

“With the new manager, you get the nod every now and again to train with the first-team. Those are the opportunities when you have got to show how good you are. When they come around, you have to do well."
