McNeil, who started his career at Manchester United before joining the Burnley academy, is looking forward to working for Everton manager Frank Lampard.

“It is an amazing feeling to sign. When I heard about Everton’s interest I wanted to get it done straight away because of the club and how good the team is,” McNeil said.

“I feel playing under a manager like Frank Lampard, he will help me to get my stats up. That is what I want to do and improve my game.

Lampard has been keen to revamp Everton’s squad after saving them from relegation following his arrival to replace Rafael Benitez in the second half of the season.

McNeil becomes Everton’s third close-season signing, joining former Burnley team-mate James Tarkowski and Ruben Vinagre, who is on a season-long loan from Sporting Lisbon.

“I have been a big admirer of Dwight for some time. He has huge talent and is exactly the type of player we want to bring into the squad to help us improve,” Lampard said.
