Everton have signed a contract with Rangers right-back Nathan Patterson until June 2027, the Premier League club announced on Tuesday. The Merseyside club did not disclose the fees for the 20-year-old Scotland international, but UK media reported the deal was in the order of £ 16million ($ 21.64million).
“It was an easy choice to sign. It’s a huge club with a huge history and the fan base is huge,” Patterson told Everton website https://www.evertonfc.com/news/ 2439782. “Obviously we’re not where we want to be right now, but we can certainly get there with the talent of the dressing room and the staff here, and I’m confident we can do it.”
Patterson joined the Rangers academy at the age of eight and made his senior debut in January 2020, leading them to the Scottish Premiership title last season while remaining undefeated. The youngster is Everton’s second signing https://www.reuters.com/article/soccer-england-eve-idUKKBN2JB18O from the January transfer window after the arrival of Ukrainian left-back Vitaliy Mykolenko from Dynamo Kiev last week.
Everton, 15th in the league table with 19 points from 18 games, travel to Hull City in the FA Cup third round on Saturday. ($ 1 = 0.7395 pounds)
