Stanley Mills has signed a first professional contract with Everton, penning a 2-year deal that runs through the end of June 2023.

Mills, 17, has graduated from his scholarship status having made significant strides since joining Everton Academy as a 14-year-old having previously been at Leeds United. Mills may have to live down having a famous footballing dad in Danny Mills,

A quick, intelligent and composed midfield player, Mills has also shown impressive resilience and determination to battle back from a serious knee injury to establish himself as an important player for Everton Under-18s.

Mills featured regularly for Paul Tait's team in 2020-21 and helped Everton reach the FA Youth Cup quarter-finals, where he scored a fine goal in the young Blues' narrow defeat to West Bromwich Albion.

Mills made the step-up to Everton's Under-23s team towards the end of the season and marked his debut at that level with a stunning strike in a 5-0 win at Southampton in May.
