Everton manager David Moyes believes Greek youngster Apostolos Vellios has an exciting future ahead of him.
The 19-year-old was snapped up virtually under the radar at the start of the year for a nominal fee from Iraklis Thessaloniki.
The teenager made the substitutes' bench against Wigan ahead of Louis Saha and he rewarded Moyes with a goal after replacing Seamus Coleman.
Moyes knows Vellios was not the big name fans perhaps expected to see the club sign, however, the Toffees' financial situation dictates they need to develop and nurture young talent.
"He can finish from crosses, he's got the ability to get on the end of things," Moyes said of Vellios.
"Technically he's really good for a big lad, he's very gifted. There's something to work with.
"It's the only way we can do it, to give some of these young boys a chance. There's the best of what we've got at the moment."
Ross Barkley is another emerging talent to compliment the likes of Coleman and Jack Rodwell and Moyes knows giving youngsters opportunities is the way forward.
"I've got to make sure that those players feel I believe in them," he continued.
"I've told the supporters we'll be giving a lot of the young boys opportunities, and it'll be up to them to show that they can do it.
"In turn, it could mean that some results don't go the way we want.
"It's difficult for an Everton supporter to accept that because they see themselves as one of the big clubs."
