Hornby scored 16 times in 20 appearances in the Under-18 Premier League last season before making the jump into Everton’s Under-23 team, where he scored three times.

The teenager also appeared for Everton’s first team against Apollon Limassol in the Europa League last season, and it would be fair to say that there is a lot of excitement surrounding the forward.

Hornby ended a strong season by representing Scotland’s Under-21 outfit at the Toulon Tournament, and scored on their route to the semi-finals of the competition.

The Everton fans have been reacting to the contract news on social media, and it would be fair to say that they are very excited about Hornby’s future at the Merseyside club.
