Everton have signed teenage defender Brendan Galloway from League One club MK Dons for an undisclosed fee.

The 18-year-old, who became MK's youngest ever player when making his debut aged 15, has agreed a five-year deal with the Premier League side.

He will go straight into the Everton under-21 team.

"I'm looking forward to learning off some of the more senior players - the likes of Sylvain Distin and Phil Jagielka," he said.

"I've been watching them for years now and they're great professionals, great players - players who have been there and done it. That's a big thing for me to be able to learn off guys like that."

Galloway is a product of the MK academy and is capped at England Under-19 level.

He expressed his desire to leave the the Buckinghamshire side earlier this summer.

"It's disappointing for the club and it's disappointing for me to lose a player of Brendan's quality," said Dons boss Karl Robinson.

"I do believe Brendan can be as good as he wants to be and I wish him all the luck in the world. He's going to a fantastic football club in Everton that will only aid his development."
