Yeovil have signed ex-Everton striker Kieran Agard on a one-year deal.

The former Arsenal youth player was released from his contract at Goodison Park last month.

"It is a good club for me to come to and hopefully me and Yeovil can move forward," the 21-year-old forward told BBC Somerset.

"I want to be playing first-team football so this is the right time for me to get out there and show everyone what I can do."

Agard made his debut for the Blues in their Carling Cup win over Hull in September 2009 and went on to play five games for the Premier League club.

He signed for Peterborough on loan in January and made one substitute appearance before joining Kilmarnock until the end of the season.
