Everton have agreed a deal to sign teenage defender Matty Foulds from Bury.

The Toffees announced on Thursday afternoon that the 17-year-old was set to move to Goodison Park for an undisclosed fee in January.

Foulds, a product of Bury's academy, has made two senior appearances to date, the first coming in August when he came on as a substitute in the Shakers' Capital One Cup defeat to Leicester.

A week later he played the full 90 minutes of a Johnstone's Paint Trophy victory over Accrington.
