Accrington have secured the services of defender Toto Nsiala on a one-year contract.
The 20-year-old made 19 appearances while on loan with Stanley from Everton and has agreed a permanent move to the Crown Ground after the Premier League outfit opted against retaining him when his present deal expires at the end of June.
"Toto is a player who we targeted early on," said Reds manager Paul Cook in a club statement.
"He has some great attributes; athleticism, pace and strength.
"He still has a lot to learn about the game but has got lots of potential and we're delighted to have him for next season."
