The versatile defender has signed a three-year deal with the Premier League giants managed by Ronald Koeman. The 18-year-old will start in the club’s reserves next season.

Markelo told the official Everton website, “It feels great to be an Everton player. It’s a nice opportunity for me and I love it here already.

“I heard something about two weeks ago after a tournament I played in and I was very happy. I decided immediately that I wanted to come to Everton.

“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.”
