Everton completed the signing of teenage defender John Stones from Barnsley on a five-and-a-half-year deal shortly before Thursday evening's transfer deadline.
The 18-year-old right-back passed a medical, agreed personal terms and penned his contract after the clubs agreed an undisclosed fee.
He told evertonfc.com: "I am very excited to be joining Everton. I've been very impressed with everything I have seen at Finch Farm already. Now the hard work begins."
