IRISH DEFENDER SEAMUS COLEMAN has signed a five-year contract extension with Everton.

The new deal should keep Coleman with the Toffees until the summer of 2019. The 25-year-old was the club’s player of the season last year and also made the PFA Team of the Year.

Coleman made 41 appearances and scored seven goals for Roberto Martinez’ men last season. Since his 2009 arrival from sligo Rovers, he has played 143 times for the Goodison Park outfit.

Coleman told the Everton FC website: “With how much I love playing at Everton, I was delighted to get the chance to sign another contract.

“I’ve been at Everton five years now and I love everything around the place. I love working with all the players, the staff, the coaching staff; everything. It was a very happy decision to make. With the manager and some of the players we have, we’re going to the right places.”

Meanwhile this evening, The Telegraph is reporting that Southampton and England left-back Luke Shaw will have a medical at Manchester United ahead of a proposed £30m transfer.
