Seamus Coleman has committed his future to Everton after putting pen to paper on a new five-year deal.
Coleman spoke highly of the club who’ve offered unwavering support after he suffered a horrific double leg fracture.
The new deal was verbally agreed before Neil Taylor’s violent lunge ended the Donegal man’s season in the Republic of Ireland’s 0-0 draw with Wales in World Cup qualifying.
“I'm delighted to get this signed,” Coleman said in a video posted on Everton’s twitter feed.
"I want to prove my worth when I come back and show the club were right for rewarding me with this long-term contract.
"I've been here for a long time and it's a special club that means a lot to me.
"Everything had been agreed and I was due to sign it after the international break but unfortunately I got the injury.
"The chairman messaged me the night of my injury and said 'Don't worry about it because when you come back this contract is still waiting for you'. That sums up what the chairman and this club is all about.
"I'm delighted with how the club has handled the situation. Knowing that I was going to come back and sign it has definitely helped things. It's a massive boost and gives me something to fight for."
