Gordon told Everton TV: “I’m delighted to sign, it is a big reward for my hard work.

“The contract shows the club’s faith in me and how much confidence they have in me and that is going to come out in my performances on the pitch.

“Everton is looking like it is on the up. We are coming together as players, staff and fans.”

Gordon became Everton’s sixth-youngest player when he made his debut as a substitute in the Europa League against Apollon Limassol in 2017, aged 16 years and 286 days.

He made his full debut against Liverpool in Everton’s first game back in June after the season had been suspended, but has yet to score his first senior goal.
