Everton waited only four days into the new year to being in their second signing of the January transfer window. After announcing the capture of Ukrainian fullback Vitaliy Mykolenko from Dynamo Kyiv, Everton have now confirmed the arrival of highly-rated Scotland International Nathan Patterson.

“I’m over the moon to sign for Everton and looking forward to getting started, It was an easy choice to sign.

 

“This is a massive club with huge history and the fanbase is tremendous. Obviously we aren’t in the place where we want to be right now but we can definitely get there with the talent in the changing room and staff here, and I have full belief we can do that.” Patterson spoke of the deal.

 

The 20-year-old has signed until 2027, and will be given the chance to become the long-term successor of veteran Seamus Coleman, who will turn 34 this year. 

 

Patterson comes into the squad at a tricky time, as the Blues are sat 15th in the table, with just one win in 12 matches. But, there will be no better time to impress new manager Rafa Benitez, who would be looking to plug the holes in his leaky defence that has conceded 32 goals already this season.
