Young midfielder joins United
Oxford United have completed the signing of midfielder Ryan Ledson from Everton for an undisclosed fee.
Ryan, 19, has been at Goodison Park since he was five and been capped by England at under 16, 17, 18 and 19 level. He has made one senior appearance for Everton in the Europa League in 2014 and spent the second part of last season on loan at Cambridge United.
He joins the U’s on a three year deal and Head Coach Michael Appleton said:
“He is a very exciting signing. He plays with passion and energy, he can see a pass and he knits things together in the middle of the park.
“It is fantastic that he is happy to come here to Oxford looking to prove himself, get games and build a career away from Everton. I think that speaks volumes for the way the club is regarded and people know that we will nurture young players the right way and always look to help them.
“He has a very bright future ahead of him”
