Loads of Everton fans have been lauding an update from the Goodison Park faithful as Tom Cannon has signed a professional contract with the club.
As per the official website of the Merseyside club, the 18-year-old has signed a two-year deal that will keep him at the Toffees until the end of June 2023.
Will Cannon break into the Everton squad?
Cannon has impressed both at U18 and U23’s level for the Blues, scoring no fewer than 23 goals and making a further eight assists in 41 games in total over all competitions across the last three consecutive terms (Transfermarkt).
Carlo Ancelotti will certainly be keeping an eye at youth level for any talent that he can promote to the senior team, and the striker is one that will eventually be looking to break into the squad with more good performances for the rest of this season.
Everton fan reaction to Cannon update
These EFC supporters lauded the update on Twitter, with one fan even going as far to claim that Cannon is a ‘proper talent’:
“Congratulations Tom, well deserved for you and all the family…hard working starts now!!“
“Got a bit of a swagger about him.”
“This lad is a proper talent. Congrats mate!”
“Welcome Tom. Only the best is good enough.”
“Well done Tom, hopefully see you soon.”
“Best of luck Tom – what a great achievement”
