The 17-year-old was a key figure for Paul Tait's team last season, helping the young Blues to a 3rd-place finish in the U18 Premier League (North) table and reaching the quarter-finals of the FA Youth Cup.
With 18 appearances in the League and 7 in cup competitions, he also won the Under-18s' Goal of the Season prize for his stunning long-range effort in the Toffees' Youth Cup victory over Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium.
Hunt, who first joined Everton aged 6, believes he is at the perfect club to continue his progress:
“It means a lot to sign this first professional deal,” he told evertonfc.com. “I've been here for a long time and Everton have put a lot of trust in me.
“There is a great team of people here. Everyone supports each other. The coaches are very supportive, all the players help each other, too.
“It's a fantastic place to be to improve as a player and that's what I want to keep doing."

Dave Abrahams, what do you reckon? Do you rate the lad?

Why would it matter if Dave Abrahams rated him? He rates Kenny highly and he's been ordinary. We've all got opinions but, as long as the coaching staff rate this kid highly enough to warrant a 3-year contract, that's good enough for me.

I respect Dave's opinion and knowledge on our youth players. Have you seen him play? I would wager Dave has.

Andrew(6), Inwouldn't describe him as diminutive, Carroll, who I really rate, is diminutive, I'd say Hunt is around 5ft. 10.
