McAvoy comes with a fine pedigree having been a regular in Fulham's Under-18s, Under-23s and also captaining Scotland Under-18s.
"I'm a hard-working centre-half who likes to put my body about and also get on the ball," he said. "I want to work hard, give everything for the club and really develop and learn from this fantastic experience at a really good club."
