Matthew Foulds 51

Following in the footsteps of John Stones, Brendan Galloway and Mason Holgate, Matty Foulds became the latest in a line of highly promising young central defensive prospects signed by Everton while still untested teenagers from the lower divisions.

Having identified him as a good prospect for the future as a 17-year-old at Bury just months after he signed his first professional contract, the club agreed a fee for Foulds with Bury in December 2015 before officially acquiring him when the winter transfer window opened on 2nd January.

A left-footed centre-back who can also operate as a left back, the Bradford-born player fits the mould of the ball-playing centre-half favoured by Roberto Martinez.  But he would only play a handful of games with the Under-21s in the second half of the season.

He only played a limited role in the Title winning campaign for David Unsworth's Under-23s in Premier League 2 the following season, becoming more of a regular as he established himself in the Blues defence during 2017-18 without making the step up to the first-team, despite the need for left-sided defenders.

** Note: Wore 38 in three Checkatrade Trophy games during the 2017-18 season; must have swapped for with Matthew Pennington, who was out on loan all season.  Now listed as 51 again for the 2018-19 Season.
