Seamus Coleman has ended speculation over his future by signing a new five- year contract at Everton.

The defender already had four years remaining on his contract, but has been rewarded with an improved deal in light of his excellence last season. He has been linked with moves to Arsenal and Manchester United but his new deal will keep him at Goodison Park until 2019.

The Republic of Ireland right back was named in the PFA Team of the Year, and is likely to be followed by James McCarthy and John Stones in committing himself to the Blues.

Coleman joined from Sligo Rover in 2008 for an initial fee of £60,000 and made 41 appearances for the club last season, netting seven goals and becoming a key attacking threat down the right.
