Tom Davies: Has signed a new, improved contract

Everton’s Under-23 side won the Premier League 2 title after earning a favour from rivals Liverpool who beat second-placed Manchester City 3-2.

City needed to win their last two matches to have a chance of catching the Toffees but their challenge ended when Reds midfielder Matty Virtue scored an added-time winner in their game at Tranmere’s Prenton Park.

Everton now have an unassailable six-point lead with one match remaining – at Goodison Park clash against Liverpool on May 8.

It’s been a season to remember for the Everton’s youngsters, with Tom Davies making 12 appearances for their U23s side this season and a number of other upcoming youngsters tipped to make the first-team breakthrough for Ronald Koeman’s side.
