He signs a three-year contract and will be eligible to play once his minor application is approved.
Described as a "superkid" who can operate across midfield, 17-year-old Jagne has apparently signed a three-year contract with Everton and will go straight into David Unsworth's Under-23s side.

Seems like a lot for a 16 year old but hopefully we have done our homework and he turns out to be a cracker.
Still think Niels Nkounkou is the 'Bargain of the Century'. We thought a Seamus type deal £60,000, would never be seen again, but hey ho you can't argue with his undoubted quality and potential and on a Free.
Marcel Brands is doing what we expected him to from the start, not sure what happened where Iwobi is concerned, but he may turn out to be worth it. However he's leaving it late to show it consistently and especially against Premier opposition.

I agree. At long last Everton have a organised structural mentality suitable for young player introduction and progression.
Good Luck to Iamin on his career move. Don't take Fat Unsie too serious and refuse a fry up, would be my advice. At last Everton is a good career move.

On this lad, it's the right idea. Already played men's football at a tender age and U23s have lost Adeniran in midfield (to Wycombe) and Baningime will surely leave too.
12 Posted 27/09/2020 at 09:07:57
Hopefully this kid signs and is another Brands gem along with Branthwaite and Nkounkou.

Shame we never got him, I suspect Marcel & Carlo would get it done today.
16 Posted 27/09/2020 at 09:53:04
So we've signed a few foreigners e.g. Seb Kristensen is under 18 and got Branthwaite at 17 by giving him a professional contract straight away, so not an Academy player officially.
I think I saw that Jagne has his 17th birthday in the next week or so, in which case we'll likely wait until then for him to sign a 3- year pro deal.
You can't sign a 3-year deal at 16 in England, and I think it's the same under FIFA regs... I may be wrong though.
17 Posted 27/09/2020 at 10:28:38
I won't even tell you how they write the number six, but that has also caused a few eyebrows to be raised even higher than Carlo's when we have used it in the presence of English people!
I'll leave you to check out Google Translate.
And if Imam is on here – Hjärtliga Välkomna!

That definitely belongs on the list of the more absurd transfer sagas at EFC... and there's been a few.
21 Posted 27/09/2020 at 13:39:49
Needless to say we weren't up to his liking, but having said that, not that I am that interested I have never heard of him or the tree since.

If this lad is half as good a prospect as Nkounkou, then it will be hopefully a good investment, for the future.
But we shall see what pans out.
Hopefully this window we can get a CB, and perhaps a few players in on full terms of loan deals,to boost our first teams squad.
24 Posted 27/09/2020 at 21:35:08
Lozano, Romero and Todibo!

I'm too long in the tooth to go into over drive, but the vibes of 1983, are there.
Let's despatch West Ham, on Wednesday, and hopefully no injuries to our squad.
30 Posted 27/09/2020 at 23:19:28
Tobias Linderoth was very basic, and I recall Alexandersen being okay, but nothing special, but scoring for us at West Ham, we won 4-0.
Jesper Blomqvist was knackered before we bought him, previously a top player, but he was ready for the knackers yard, and why we bought him still baffles me.
In fairness, those teams were in the transitions of the seemingly lost years in terms of Everton being a serious challenge.
Now for now and Lukaa Til, for Everton, this season and the future.
All stay safe and well.

I know it can be a very thin line between making it and not, and quite often as in a lot of walks of life being in the right place at the right time, and being spotted by the right people can be the difference.
Equally so, some show incredible promise, get through to the top echelons then just fizzle out, Funny Old Game isn't it?
33 Posted 28/09/2020 at 19:47:27
Well done Issac.
34 Posted 28/09/2020 at 20:28:05
You werent paying that much attention at recent European Championships. Rasmus Elm was a regular for Sweden, didnt quite scale the heights of the likes of Henke Larsson or Zlatan but carved out a decent career.
As to this fellow, who knows at 16, but if you throw enough mud at the wall, some of it will stick.
Think our association with Swedes down the years (especially the 90s) meant we have quite a good fanbase over there, particularly as the other lot had more Norwegians playing for them (Riise and Bjornebye to name at least two)

He has not played for the 1st XI this season and was a sub in the last match of last season.
He is actually listed in the senior squad rather than the U19s.
I think to class Häcken as similar to Swindon is a bit of a disservice. Swindon won League 2 last year - Häcken have been in the top 6 of the Swedish Premiership for most of the last 10 years, won the cup and been in UEFA Cup on a regular basis although never quite getting through to the group stages.

Presume Partey will not be in the Arsenal team for the next match as it will be less than 14 days since he arrived from Spain. Interesting that a player from Germany brought to this country has been one of the ones to test positive 12 days after he presumably arrived.
There was a photo of Gundogan only now back in training and therefore whether those who have had COVID are going to be fit enough to play as soon as they are clear of the 14 days.
