EVERTON TODAY CONFIRMED that James McCarthy has signed a new deal keeping him at the club until the end of the 2020 season.

The Irish midfielder, who had been linked with a move away from Goodison Park during this summer’s transfer window, put pen to paper on a five-year contract extension today.

He joins Seamus Coleman in committing his long-term future to Everton after the Donegal defender signed a similar deal last season.

McCarthy has made 76 appearances for the Toffees and told evertontv:

“I’m buzzing and delighted to be committing my future long-term to Everton. I’ve loved every minute I’ve been here, with the fans having made me feel so welcome from day one, as well as the players and staff.

“This is a brilliant club with a brilliant fanbase and what we want to try to do is bring some success here and push forward.
