At any club, it’s vital that you have a pool of talented young players who can form the future core of a team, and the club has announced that Con Ouzounidis has signed a new one-year deal with the club.
As was confirmed yesterday, the highly-rated defender, Con Ouzounidis, signed his first professional contract with the club. The defender started last season with the under-18 side, but his impressive performances earnt him a promotion to the under-23’s where he has performed tremendously well for David Unsworth’s team.
Here’s how Everton supporters have reacted to the news on Twitter.

Without question, it’s hugely significant that we retain the services of our most promising young players, as they have the potential to develop into genuinely excellent players. Ouzounidis scored two goals in six appearances for the under-23’s, and he’s clearly a gifted talent. One for the future, indeed!
