Donegal’s Seamus Coleman has signed a new five and a half year deal that will see him stay with English Premier League side Everton until 2018.
The Killybegs man and former Sligo Rovers player says he is delighted with his new deal and he is looking forward to repaying the clubs faith in him in the New Year.
Speaking on club station “Everton TV” he said: “I’m over the moon. 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.”
He added: “Signing a contract here is fantastic and I’m really looking forward to the next couple of years. 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.”
The Republic of Ireland International has made 49 Premier League appearances for the ‘Toffees’ after making his debut against Benfica in October 2009.
