Everton legend extends his stint with new one-year contract

Seamus Coleman has committed to a new one-year contract, extending his stay at Goodison Park until 2024, relays The Irish Times.

The Irish right-back’s previous deal was set to expire at the end of this month. Despite facing injuries towards the end of the previous season, Coleman is determined to add to his impressive tally of 409 appearances for the Toffees. Having joined Everton in January 2009, the 34-year-old requires just three more matches to become the club’s all-time record appearance holder in the Premier League.

In an interview with the club’s official website, Coleman expressed his deep attachment to Everton, describing the opportunity to sign the new contract as special and reaffirming his commitment to playing for the esteemed club.

“From the moment I joined more than 14 years ago, the support my family and I have had from our fans and everyone around the club has been amazing and I never take for granted just how fortunate I am to represent Everton. That has included the honour of wearing the captain’s armband in recent years.”

Sean Dyche also commented: “We are all pleased Séamus has signed his new deal. I have hugely enjoyed working with him since becoming Everton manager.

“He is a top professional who helps to set high standards every day and makes it clear what it means to play for Everton Football Club.

“His quality and experience continue to be of great use and will do again once he’s back fit.”
