Goalkeeper Joao Virginia has joined Everton for an undisclosed fee.
The 18-year-old signed for us from Benfica in summer 2015 and featured for our under-18s and under-23s.
Joao has represented his country up to under-20 level and was included in Portugal’s squad for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Brazil, also helping Portugal Under-19s to win this summer's European Championship.
We would like to thank Joao for his contribution to the club and wish him well for the future.
The transfer is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
