Everton signing David Henen makes assist on debut in under-21 win

New Everton signing David Henen was a substitute as the club's under-21 side notched another win.

Amid Everton's impressive capture of Romelu Lukaku and Samuel Eto'o this summer, the arrival of David Henen went somewhat under the radar.

The Belgian youth starlet is an 18-year-old centre-forward who signed on loan from Anderlecht, having been on loan at Monaco last season.

Henen was also linked to Arsenal, yet it was the Toffees who moved quickest to secure his signature.

The teenager made his debut for the club on Monday afternoon, in an under-21 victory away at Southampton.

Henen came on in the second half minute, and played a part in the side's third goal of the game.

Everton's official website wrote: "David Henen, who came off the bench to make his first appearance in an Everton shirt, beat his marker on the right and squared for Long to sweep in from three-yards."

Everton's goals were scored by Conor Grant and a double from Chris Long.

Manager Roberto Martinez told The Guardian earlier this month: "As we had said previously he’s someone whose potential we recognise and at this stage he will go into the under-21 development squad, we’re looking forward to working with him this season.".
