Everton have tied promising young striker Shayne Lavery down with the award of a one-year contract extension with the club.
The 19-year-old, an acquisition from Glenavon three years ago who has already made his senior debut for Northern Ireland, is the latest of David Unsworth's Under-23s side to put pen to paper on new terms for the coming season.
"I'm so happy to have signed a new deal,” he told evertonfc.com . “It's great being at Everton, it's a massive club.
"I came over here when I was 16 and improved my all-round game. There's a lot I can still do to get better, though, and I want to keep developing.
"The training under Unsy is intense but enjoyable, too. It gets you fit and he is a very good coach."

He was troubled by a hamstring injury and didn't make many starts last season — only 3 across all U23 competitions — with another 11 as sub. However, he popped in 4 goals, which is a pretty good ratio.
