Allan eyes long Everton stay

Allan is keen to make his spell with Everton as long as possible.

The 30-year-old midfielder played for Vasco da Gama in his native Brazil and for Uruguayan side Maldonado, before making his way across the Atlantic in 2012. He joined Granada, but never made an appearance for the La Liga side; he was immediately shipped out on a two-year loan to Udinese which was then made permanent, and in 2015, he joined Napoli. Carlo Ancelotti, who had worked with him in Naples, took the opportunity to take him to Everton last summer for a reported fee of €25 million.

Allan has so far made 20 appearances for the Toffees in all competitions, missing just under two months of action through a muscle issue.

“My thoughts are to remain at Everton for as long as possible,” he told the club’s official website.

“It feels good, I feel at home here. When you feel good and motivated to do your best on the pitch, there’s no reason you would think about moving.

“It’s very early to have this conversation, I know, but I’m really happy here and hope to stay for many years and leave my mark in the hearts of the fans and at the club.”

Allan’s current contract with Everton expires in 2023.
