Everton have signed Fulham’s teenage midfielder Dennis Adeniran for a fee that could rise to around £4m, according to various reports this afternoon.

The England under-18 international has put pen to paper on a four-year contract at Goodison Park with Everton moving quickly to take the talented midfielder from Craven Cottage. The 18 year-old marked his Fulham debut with a goal – heading home the first goal in the Whites’ League Cup victory at Leyton Orient last August. He made his league debut as a late substitute in the 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest the following month.

Adeniran, who has made five first-team appearances for Fulham in total, also helped England reach the quarter finals of the European Under 17 Championships in Azerbaijan.
