Sean McAllister, a midfielder for the current Everton U21s, has signed a contract extension that runs through June 2024. 

The 20-year-old Northern Irishman joined the Blues from Dungannon Swifts in the summer of 2019 and has developed from a young prospect in the U18s to become a key player in Paul Tait's U21s. 

McAllister was the team captain and star player in the 2020-21 season for the U18s, leading in appearances and scoring 8 in a season that would see him move up to start playing for the Under-23s in their last couple of games. 

He went on to have a mixed season in 2021-22 with his game time limited, injuries preventing his full involvement in the U23 squad. He did not play any part in 16 of the 35 games played across all competitions. But he showed some good skills with an eye for goal when things were going his way.

The new Director of Football, Keven Thelwell, liked what he saw, however, giving McAllister a 1-year contract extension in July 2022

A well-rounded midfielder who can play a number of different roles, McAllister has made 14 Premier League 2 appearances this season, plus a further 3 in the EFL Cup and the Premier League International Cup, with 3 goals and 7 assists.

"I’m feeling great," he told Everton TV after signing his new deal. "It’s a pleasure to sign. I have loved life at the club since I arrived and I have been made to feel very welcome."

After returning from 3½ months out injured over the winter, when he missed 18 games, McAllister has been a mainstay in Tait's first XI, starting each of Everton U21s past 6 matches and being handed the captain's armband twice.

Excellent news. Hopefully Thelwell can loan him out to a decent club in the Championship.

Ohh… wait
