The midfielder, a regular now in the Under-21s side and captain of England U17s European Championship-winning team earlier this year, has agreed a three-year deal.
Ledson was also included in the first team squad for the first time at the end of last season as Roberto Martinez primes him to potentially make the step up to senior duty in the coming months.
"I'm delighted," Ledson told evertontv. "I've been here since I was a young kid and this is what you strive towards. The day has finally come, so I'm made up.
"For me, it's been 12 years of hard work at Everton Football Club to get to this day, but there is no better place to be and I'm absolutely over the moon."

Bobby I imagine will include him in a few first-team squads this season; hope to see him get some game time, perhaps in the Europe league.

Is Ledson the lad who someone in here saw play and commented that the kid was definitely in charge out there on the pitch. I'm pretty sure the comment was made regarding one of England's U-Teams.
Was it Ledson? It was one of our youngsters.

This kid has got everything in his locker: short passing, one- and two-touch, vision with the ability to play the pass he sees early, and aggression in abundance.

Hopefully we’ll see him break through in some shape or form before the season’s out.

The lad is a natural winner. He was brilliant in the England U17 final against Holland. His composure in taking the penalty during the shootout (as the Dutch keeper attempted to put him off) was very remarkable and fills me with confidence that he wants to go far.

You never know Â– it may be Brewster next, he seems to be pretty lethal for our Under-18s ATM.

The U21s demonstrated the vulnerability of building up from the back when the opposition challenge high up with pace and ferocity. It happened to England and others in Brazil and it will happen to Everton in the Premier League. Martinez is aware of it and says it will just mean slight adjustments. Personally, I don't have a clue what he means. I just hope it works.
