Seamus Coleman is on the brink of signing a new contract and committing his future to Premership club Everton.

The Killybegs defender’s current contract runs out in 2015 and it has been reported this week that Everton manager David Moyns is anxious to see Coleman remain at Goodison Park.

Coleman was signed from Sligo Rovers for a €60,000 and the 24-year-old is believed to have a clause in his existing contract that entitles him to a new deal after a certain number of first team appearances.

Unconfirmed reports are suggesting that the new contract will see the versatile Coleman earn in the region of Stg£40,000 per week wage bracket.

“We have held positive talks with Everton and I am confident there will be a positive conclusion soon,” the players agent, Hayden Evans, confirmed this week.
