Everton fans react as club unveil Anderson contract

Lots of Everton fans have been reacting to some contract news, as the club announced that Joe Anderson has penned his first professional deal.

Anderson has signed a two-year deal that will keep him at Goodison until June 2021, the Toffees confirmed on their official site.

The 18 year-old, who plays primarily as a centre back, made 43 appearances in all competitions for the under-18 side last season, scoring once. He can also play left-back or even in midfield.

“To sign a professional deal for such a big club, you can’t ask for any more,” Anderson told evertonfc.com. “It was what I’ve dreamed of as a kid.”
