Everton sign Gibson
Everton have signed highly rated defender Lewis Gibson on a three year contract.
17 year old Gibson has been signed on a three year contract from Newcastle United, following weeks of talks and reports seem to suggest that Everton have got a bargain for the rumoured £6m he cost.
“Everton is a brilliant club and when the opportunity presented itself I wanted to be part of it,” Gibson said.
“The reputation has long been there that Everton brings through young players. You only have to look at the likes of Tom Davies, Kieran Dowell, Jonjoe Kenny and several others who are battling for first-team places to know this.
“I’m a player who is willing to put my body on the line, the kind of defender who likes to tackle and is not afraid. I’m excited to be part of things here and I want to continue developing as a player. This is where I want to be.”
