The 18-year-old is one of the hottest prospects in the Blues' Finch Farm Academy and is being talked about in terms a of a first-team breakthrough at some point this season.
Walsh spent part of last season on loan at Yeovil Town where he was hugely impressive and there were rumours that Everton did a u-turn on plans to send him out on loan again this season because of his potential readiness for the senior side.
“I am made up," Walsh told evertontv. "Since I signed my first contract it's what I've wanted. It's the club I want to be at and the club I want to play for.
"With the new manager coming in and giving me the contract straight away it shows that he has got a bit of belief in me and I want to prove him right.
“I have a lot to thank Unsy for as well, I have worked with him a lot and he has made me work very hard and that is what you need to get new contracts. A lot of other staff through the Academy have helped me along the way and I am thankful to them all.”

Hard work will get it's own reward and practice makes perfect; I hear you have done plenty of both. I hope to see you one day in the first team, good luck and good health in the future.

He's not the tallest, but hes very gifted and I reckon he's got a big future. Hopefully he'll be given a few cameos this season.
Nice to hear him say that this is the club where he wants to play football too.

What I like the most about these interviews is the recurring sound bites over Unsi and his influence.

Good luck to all three of these kids, because we all know that, if they make the grade at Everton, they will always try that little bit harder than most of the mercenaries now present in English football.

Great news of that contract signed Liam, I hope you have a very long and successful career in our shirt.

After his loan-spell bringing him back home, that just got me carried away, so I naturally worried about what would WE do about our youth academy, if we did a Man Utd? SAF built their success on Man Utd's youth team coming through, but after that, there were no place for youth. Professionalism, and league placing, ruled all.
Is it possible for us to be successful, and still get youth through?
Yeah, that's my big worry. Not IF we'll make it, but what about afterwards? :D
