The 19-year-old is a product of the Blades youth academy and made 11 league appearances for the first team after making his debut in 2014.

The forward found regular opportunities hard to come by at Bramall Lane and was handed the chance to join Ronald Koeman’s Everton revolution over the summer.

Everton shelled out £1.5million for the England under-20 international, who is seen as one for the future.

Calvert-Lewin insists it was an opportunity he couldn’t refuse and says he is settling into life with the Premier League outfit.

“It’s an opportunity I couldn’t turn down,” Calvert-Lewin said.

“Everton is a great football club as is Sheffield United.

“Maybe I wasn’t that much in favour at United and getting the game time. Maybe sometimes you need a new opportunity. I was at Sheffield United a long time and often a change of scenery can do you good.

“I’ve settled in well (at Everton), I’m really enjoying it and working with different people.

“It’s a slightly different style of football and everything is geared towards making me a better player. The same as it was at Bramall Lane.”
