Whether it's been at Bellefield, or later at Finch Farm, Everton's youth academy has produced a number of players who've gone on to make a name for themselves in the first team, or elsewhere.
Wayne Rooney, Leon Osman, Tony Hibbert and Jack Rodwell all came through the ranks at Everton before making their first team debuts, and going further back there are even bigger names to conjure with—Colin Harvey, Joe Royle and Kevin Ratcliffe, to name just a few.
In recent years, though, production has dried up slightly, and while prospects like Shane Duffy and Ross Barkley hover around the fringes of the first team, they've had to content themselves with opportunities coming off the bench, and trying to prove their worth away on loan spells.
So who will be the next big thing to come out of the youth academy at Everton?
Here are five who we think will be the next to get their chance.
