Oldham Athletic have agreed terms with attacking midfielder George Green following his release from Everton.
The 19-year-old has signed a two-year deal with the club, with the option of a third.
Speaking about the deal, Green said: "I play as a number 10 in the hole and I can bring creativity to the squad.
"I make chances for the strikers and want to pitch in with a few goals as well to help the club achieve promotion next season.
"Joe Royle at Everton pushed me towards Oldham because of his relationship with the club and I managed to get the move and I'm delighted to be here.
"The gaffer has got a good footballing philosophy and he conducts himself very well so I can't wait to work under him."
Manager Darren Kelly added: "George is an excellent creative player who can open things up and will be a massive asset to the team.
"He is excellent on the ball and his delivery into the box is absolutely superb and I'm excited to work with him.
"After speaking to George, he is hungry and cannot wait to get cracking.
"He is still a young lad and his ambition matches mine in terms of being successful so I'm delighted to have him on board."
Green will officially join the club on July 1.
