Everton fans react on Twitter to signing of Matty Foulds

Everton have confirmed they have agreed a deal with Matty Foulds ahead of the January transfer window.

Everton confirmed on their official website that Matty Foulds is set to move from Bury to Goodison Park in the January transfer window, with an agreement between player and club being reached today.

A centre-back, Foulds is well regarded in English football, and is considered to be a star of the future. He is 17-years-old, and has played just two senior games for League One Bury, but the Toffees had no issues raiding the lower leagues for another potential star.


Both John Stones and Brendan Galloway were signed from the lower leagues, and are now key parts of Everton’s defence, whilst centre-back Mason Holgate made the switch to Merseyside from Barnsley in the summer transfer window, after just 22 first-team appearances.

Everton’s transfer business is clearly based around preparing the first-team for the future, with the desire to sign talented youngsters who could one day go on to play in the first-team, and many will hope Foulds can go on to emulate John Stones at Goodison Park.

Following the announcement of the deal, Everton fans took to Twitter to react to the signing, praising the club for their forward thinking approach to transfers.
