The 19-year-old has been a target for the Blues for most of the summer and looked to have been secured weeks ago but the deal didn't come to fruition when it was first reported by the Liverpool Echo.
Calvert-Lewin underwent a medical today before signing a four-year contract with the Blues and his transfer was completed shortly before the deadline.
Described as being physically strong with good aerial presence, Calvert-Lewin has just been named in England's U20 squad, having made it into the Blades' senior squad last year following a loan spell at Northampton Town.
He will go straight into Everton's Under-23s under David Unsworth who said: "This is an opportunity of a lifetime for him. To go from League One to the Premier League is a massive jump but he certainly has all of the attributes to make that jump, given time, hard work and the desire I know he has.”

Done Deal: Everton complete move for striker.
Only to reveal the pathetic storyline;
EVERTON have confirmed a deal to send striker Shani Tarashaj on loan to Eintracht.
I should have known better now looking for a way to block these bullshit merchants on NewsNow

Apologies, I appreciate that is hardly a Haroldesque analysis, it's just what I've been told.

We've signed a lot of young strikers in the last few years, Jutekiwiez, the Greek, and Urugauy lads that never made it but throw enough darts and surely one will stick.

The single biggest issue is our lack of cover up front, an injury to Lukaku and we're relying on Kone or a combination of Mirallas and Deulofeu, not the sort of thing that a club with serious European ambitions should be contemplating.
14 Posted 31/08/2016 at 17:12:52
Whatever happens now, it has been a farce this window.
15 Posted 31/08/2016 at 17:19:27
Where to start?
It's been 'widely stated' that Kenwright is still doing the deals. Show me one credible source this is true.
As for this 'farce' of a window, I would say the squad is stronger but still needs reinforcing. And there is still six hours to go.
16 Posted 31/08/2016 at 17:20:52
17 Posted 31/08/2016 at 17:24:39
Lukaku gets injured what happens next?
Good for you if you are content, you are a better man than me.

Saying that, I mentioned the deal to a season ticket cobbler at work and he couldn't even remember him!
20 Posted 31/08/2016 at 18:26:48
We've not addressed
- The goalkeeping situation
- The reserve left back situation (Oviedo is always injured and isn't great)
- The creative midfielder situation
- The 2 (yes, 2) strikers required alongside Lukaku (what if Rom gets injured and the replacement loses form or gets sent off? Or we need another option from the bench?
I could even say we need another centre back (we only have Jagielka, Funes Mori and Williams granted the inexperienced Holgate has been decent so far.
This has been rubbish.

Oh ok... I guess we should trust your mate from Sheffield, rather than back Koeman/Unsworth...
I've seen some stupid comments on TW tonight... But this takes the cake.
23 Posted 31/08/2016 at 21:03:26
Of course, like Holgate & a few others, I'd love the guy to prove him wrong, especially as he plays in our masters team and the bastards just knocked my boys out of the cup!!

Spot on mate, Kenwright is not to blame, its not all down to that one man.
Moshiri is the man with the money now, he's the majority share holder, and with barely an hour of this deadline left to go were all waiting around watching SSN to find out we're getting left hung out to dry yet again.
A cheap and cheerful cut-price goalkeeper, no forward, a possible shortage of centre-backs, Coleman replacement brought through the youth system (I've no problem with that, but surely that opens up money for other positions).
Bidding on a player from the Championship who's over-priced, and has been available for the same fee we are bidding today, the last day of the window.
All amounts to one big joke to be honest. Even with Sissoko in, McCarthy will more than likely go funding most of the deal.
I'm feeling short changed and conned by the new regime.
26 Posted 31/08/2016 at 23:53:03
I think the next windows will be a lot different. The players we've bought in are very good. We dodged a major bullet with Sissoko... We badly needed a striker – that's the most disappointing.
A lot of teams have panic bought in this window. Doesn't mean shit when it's 11 v 11 on the field. A lot of overpriced average players were bought in this window.

You have to pay the going rate, there has been decent players loaned out by many clubs just to get their wages off their hands.
Bony and Mangala could have been brought into the club as part of the Stones deal, both would have strengthened the squad.
If Rom got an injury lasting a couple of months then we would be in big trouble.
I was genuinely never convinced with Sissoko, but if RK wanted him then I'd accept it.
Many players on the continent were available at good prices, especially in the Spanish and German leagues.
I feel like we are being conned again, I said it a month ago and I feel like today has confirmed my worries.
We have brought in some decent players, but not enough to turn 11th place team into a top 4-6 side.
Very very disappointed.
29 Posted 01/09/2016 at 02:02:56
It's not a case of Rom getting injured, we are struggling now with Rom's goal drought.
Let's remember where Holgate, Stones, Galloway came from, before we dismiss Calvert-Lewin and Valencia.
At least McGeady has gone so not all bad.
30 Posted 01/09/2016 at 05:13:15
Even if he did stay fit, there's no guarantee of goals so what's our options? The two boys I mentioned or Deulofeu, a makeshift striker/ under achieving winger, to challenge him for a starting job? Give me a fucking break.
It's all well and good saying the transfer window opens again in January but what if it's too late? If we are not in a position to challenge for Europe then, there's a good chance we won't be in April so then we can look forward to the same snubs next summer.
I was holding out buying my new home jersey for the marquee name we were supposed to get. Fucking depressing. COYB

Always worth a punt on potential especially as this lad has a bit of size about him to go with his developing talent.
Wishing him luck and welcome to the best club you could have signed for, he will love working with Unsworth providing he shapes up.

The Swiss is having a year in Germany, the Uruguyan has been offered his cards, McAleny got a game the other day, Henen still seems to be here, Byrne is where?
What's a good score here, 1 out of 6? And how many coming through the Academy? No wonder we needed Vint & Walsh...
36 Posted 03/09/2016 at 19:02:13
The U-23s have a good opportunity to showcase their skills this season, be interesting to see what this lad is like.
