Tom Davies has admitted to Everton's official website that it's an 'unbelievable' feeling when Marco Silva gives him the armband.
The 20-year-old has led Everton out on a number of occasions this season, due to injuries to more senior players.
Davies has been on the books at Finch Farm since an 11-year-old, and the youngster admits that it's a huge honour for him to skipper his boyhood club.
He told the club's official website: "I love it. Obviously being from here and supporting the club gives you that extra lift and I’m so proud of myself to do it.
“To be captain of Everton is amazing for me. I just want to keep doing it and showing I can do that role in the team and leading us out.
“It’s unbelievable. Leading the team out as captain and seeing all the Evertonians, for me, I couldn’t be prouder."
Davies had some struggles earlier this season, but he is now a key member of Silva's squad yet again.
He has started Everton's last four games, but the three most recent ones have been defeats and it's hugely important that the under-fire Portuguese manager turns things around.
They have this weekend off, before visiting Cardiff City on February 26, and then the small matter of a Merseyside derby with Liverpool at Anfield on March 3.
