Plymouth Argyle have completed the signing of American midfielder Anton Peterlin following a successful trial.
The 23-year-old has been training with the Pilgrims since the start of the summer and completed the deal after passing a medical on Tuesday.
Peterlin joined Everton on a one-year deal in July last year but did not make a single first-team appearance for the club.
The California-born player has had other previous spells for the San Francisco Seals and Ventura County Fusion.
Peterlin is expected to feature for the League One club when they take on Hereford United in a pre-season tie on Wednesday night, having reportedly penned a one-year contract.
