Everton have completed the signing of teenage defender Nathan Baxter from Vitesse Arnhem.

Born in Manchester, Baxter, a left-footed centre-half, moved to the Netherlands a decade ago and joined Vitesse's academy in 2014.

Now he joins the Blues' Academy at Finch Farm and was one of 14 young players who signed scholarship forms with the club this week:

Alex Denny (midfielder), Jordan Corke (defender), Charlie Ball (forward), Stephen Duke-McKenna (midfielder), Sid Kerr (midfielder), Fraser Hornby (midfielder), Nathan Moore (defender), Tom Murphy (goalkeeper), Manassé Mampala (forward), Thomas Scully (midfielder), Kieran Phillips (forward), Con Ouzounidis (defender).

The list also includes a young goalkeeper from Manchester City, Joe Hilton.

Joe Hart is still a top-class goalkeeper and I would take him in a heart beat.

You only have to look at his performances for Man City last season to prove that.

Sounds good. Can we please make sure we don't let any of these young stars go and then they go onto play for world champions or our own national team...

Includes Ball and Moore as well as Baxter, we should have been in years ago. Let's hope it is ominous without being burdensome.
