Everton have strengthened their Premier League 2-winning squad by signing Holland Under-18 international Nathangelo Markelo from Dutch second division side FC Volendam on a three-year contract.

The 18-year-old, who can play at centre-back or on the right side of defence, will go straight into under-23 coach David Unsworth’s set-up as they begin preparations to defend their inaugural title.

“I’m looking forward to the season now. I have three years here and I hope to get plenty of playing time, develop as a player and then just keep making steps forward towards the first team,” Markelo told Everton’s official website.

Markelo becomes Everton’s fourth signing of the window already as Ronald Koeman looks to get the Toffees’ transfer business done early.

Jordan Pickford has arrived at Goodison Park for a club-record £30million from Sunderland, a record for a British goalkeeper.

Davy Klaassen joined from Ajax in a £23.6million move while Malaga’s 21-year-old striker Sandro Ramirez moves for £5.2million.
