Everton striker Conor McAleny has signed a new deal at Goodison Park.

The 21-year old agreed a deal keeping him at Goodison Park until the summer of 2017, and is keen to break into the first team this season.

The striker spent much of last season sidelined through injury after fracturing his leg while on loan at Brentford in August, where he was hoping to feature in their promotion push. He returned for the club's under-21s in February and contributed with three goals.

McAleny first joined the Everton academy at the age of 11 and made his first-team debut against Arsenal in 2011, following that with an appearance against Norwich City the following week.

Roberto Martinez is keen to use the youth available to him next season with the extended amount of games, and the striker says that the manager has told him he will be a part of his plans.
