Nathan Patterson 3

Everton sealed the capture of Nathan Patterson from Glasgow Rangers in a deal that could ultimately be worth £16m on 4th January, 2022, the penultimate signing that would be made during Rafael Benitez's ill-fated tenure that would be curtailed just 12 days later.

Though the terms of the deal were officially undisclosed, reports indicated that the Blues would pay an initial £11M for Patterson, with a further £5M dependent on appearance-related clauses.

The Glasgow-born full-back has signed a 5½-year contract that would run to the summer of 2027 and arrived at Goodison Park 5 months after Everton tried to sign him for a reported £9M but the two clubs could not come to an agreement over payment terms.

With the confirmation of the transfer. the Blues appeared to have found a potential long-term successor to skipper Seamus Coleman who, at 33, was getting towards the end of his career as a week-in, week-out starter.

“I'm over the moon to sign for Everton and looking forward to getting started,” said Patterson, who will wear the Number 3 jersey, on  evertontv.

“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.

“It is really exciting to come to a club that has huge talent in the team. I am going to work my socks off and hopefully I can do well with them in training and in games.

“It was also great for me knowing the manager really wanted me here and that made my decision. When a club really wants you, it makes your mind up early on.

“I wanted to come here from the very start. I'm delighted to be here and really looking forward to playing in front of the fans at Goodison.

“Long-term, I want to nail down a starting position and win some trophies to make the fans proud.”

But after joining Everton in January, he sat on the bench for 7 games before getting his senior debut against Boreham Wood in the FA Cup 5th Round in March, although he had a run-out for one game in the Under-23s. He was taken off at half-time in that cup-tie as Everton were really struggling – but it was no reflection on him.

After turning out for Scotland in March, Nathan was going back to start for Everton against West Ham, but he got injured the day before the game.  The full-back underwent surgery on an ankle problem at the beginning of April, which ended his 2021-22 season for the Blues.

Having not made a Premier League appearance since his January move from Rangers, he proved unable to help in the battle against relegation that went down to the penultimate game against  Crystal Palace.

Patterson was declared fit enough to start for Scotland in June 2022 and helped them to an impressive win over Armenia in the Nations League, while Jonjoe Kenny's decision to leave Everton opened up his pathway to succeed the aging Seamus Coleman in the first-team.
