Everton fullback Matthew Mallon has signed a new deal to 2024.

Mallon, who has been at the Blues' Academy since the age of four, captained Everton Under-18s last season and has already made a handful of appearances for the Under-21s.

The West Derby-born defender is now relishing the opportunity to pursue his ultimate goal of First-Team football at the Club that "feels like home".

"It's a massive boost to get everything signed," 18-year-old Mallon told evertonfc.com. "It means so much for me and my family.

"To know it's done and that I'm secure for the next two years is a great feeling.

"During last season, it looked like I was going to leave but the Club wanted to keep me and it's every boy's dream to play for a club like Everton, so I'm pleased to get it sorted.

"Everton is like home to me. I've been here for such a long time. I enjoy being around the lads here, I enjoy the environment - to be able to be at a top club, like I am, and to be happy, like I am, is what you dream about."
