Everton set to sign Newcastle United defender
Everton are set to sign young Newcastle United defender Lewis Gibson according to former Sky Sports and now ESPN journalist Pete O’Rourke on twitter.
The 16 year old defender had been linked with moves to Manchester United, Celtic, Manchester City, Arsenal and Southampton, but Everton look to have signed the youngster.
Director of football Steve Walsh is overseeing an aggressive recruitment drive of players aged between 16-18 and Gibson is a central part of his plans.
Should Everton keep targeting the best young players in the country?
