Everton have signed Northern Irish Shane Duffy from Foyle Harps in Derry. That takes the number of players representing Everton in the current Victory Shield tournament up to 5 (Baxter, Davies, Roberts and McArdle are the others).
Duffy was attracting the interest of Arsenal, Manchester United and Celtic but he chose Everton for two reasons; Finch Farm facilities are second to none, and that he wanted to show some loyalty to Everton who were first interested in him two years ago and not some Johnny-come-latelies who wanted to sign him solely on the back of his Victory Shield appearances. Incidentally scouts were also impressed by his younger brother and he is expected to join the academy in the future.
Name: Shane Duffy Position: Centre Half Born: 1/1/92 (age 15) Place of Birth: Londonderry, Northern Ireland
