LONDON (AFP) - Everton have signed England youth international football defender Brendan Galloway on a five-year deal from League One side MK Dons.

The 18-year-old, who was born in Zimbabwe, will join the under-21 side at Goodison Park.

"It means an awful lot to me coming to such a great club. I'm now looking forward to learning off some of the more senior players - the likes of Sylvain Distin and Phil Jagielka," Galloway told the official Everton website.

"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."
