David Unsworth says Everton have signed a “really exciting prospect” in Bassala Sambou from Coventry City.

Sambou, 18, signed a three-year deal at Goodison Park and is Everton’s first acquisition of the summer.

Sambou, a forward, scored 25 goals for Coventry at youth level, mostly for the Under-18s, with four in the Under-21 Professional Development League 2.

The 18-year-old will start with Everton’s Under-21s, who finished third in Division 1 of the 2015/16 Under-21 Premier League

“I tracked his progress over the whole of last season and he’ll be a quality player to take into the Under-21 group,” Unsworth, Everton’s Under-21 coach, told evertonfc.com. “I believe he’ll be a Premier League player in the future.”
