Everton swoop for latest Danish teenager off Lyngby production line
Everton have signed 16-year-old centre-back Sebastian Kristensen from Danish club Lyngby Boldklub.
The deal has been announced in Denmark, although Kristensen won't join up with the Blues until July when he will begin pre-season training with the Everton under-18 squad.
Lyngby have earned a reputation for developing talented players in recent years, including Borussia Dortmund star Jacob Bruun Larsen, Yussuf Poulsen at RB Leipzig and Ajax's Lasse Schone.
A statement from club chairman Birger Jorgensen read: "We are happy with Sebastian's development and his hard work, which now carries fruit in the form of a nice change.
"At the same time, we are proud that we have once again helped develop a player that is interesting for clubs at the top level."
