Striker Courtney Duffus has left Everton to join League One side Oldham Athletic for an undisclosed fee, it was announced on Monday night.

The Toffees confirmed the 21-year-old’s departure via their official Twitter account, while Oldham announced that he had signed a two-year deal on their own Twitter account:

The youngster ends a six year spell at Goodison Park, having risen through the youth ranks to establish himself firmly among the Under-21 squad.

However, despite his potential, he failed to break into the senior side for the Toffees, only managing to reach the bench for a Europa League tie against Swiss side BSC Young Boys back in February 2015.

H was introduced to the experience of first team football during a month long loan spell at Oldham’s fellow League One side Bury, as he failed to find the back of the net in his five appearances, although just two came in the starting XI.

He helped the Everton Under-23 side pick up the Premier League 2 title last season, scoring three goals and chipping in with two assists during his 18 outings for the Toffees’ reserve side.

He also has international experience, having made three appearances for the Republic of Ireland Under-21 squad.

His debut came in a 2-0 win over Slovenia back in September 2016, while he scored his first goal for his country a month later in a 3-1 defeat at home to Serbia.
