Everton captain Seamus Coleman has signed a new one-year contract extension, keeping him at the club until the end of June 2024.
The 34-year-old Republic of Ireland right-back has made 409 appearances for the Toffees since joining from Sligo Rovers in 2009. Coleman is currently Everton’s longest-serving player and was appointed club captain in 2019.
The new deal comes as Coleman recovers from a knee injury sustained in May. Despite the setback, Coleman expressed his excitement about continuing to play for the club he loves. “Everyone knows how much Everton means to me, which is why it is special to sign this new contract and continue to play for this great club,” said Coleman.
Everton manager Sean Dyche also praised Coleman, stating, “We are all pleased Seamus has signed his new deal. I have hugely enjoyed working with him since becoming Everton manager”. Coleman’s commitment to the club is a testament to his dedication and passion for Everton, and fans can look forward to his continued leadership on and off the pitch.
