Promising fullback Seamus Coleman has signed a new five-year contract with English Premier League club Everton.
Republic of Ireland international Coleman, who joined Everton from Sligo Rovers in 2009, is now contracted to the Goodison Park outfit until 2018.
The 24-year-old has made 85 first-team appearances to date, although he has missed Everton’s last three matches through injury.
“Signing a contract here is fantastic and I’m really looking forward to the next couple of years,” Coleman told EvertonTV.
“I’m glad to get it all done and to sign for so long at a club like Everton is a great achievement – I want to be here for as long as possible.
“I’m going to keep working as hard as I have done since day one and keep improving every day in training to impress the manager.
“I’m really happy to have signed for the length of time that I have.”
