Everton Have Handed Seamus Coleman A MASSIVE New Contract

Everton Have Handed Seamus Coleman A MASSIVE New Contract
By PJ Browne Updated

Everton announced this afternoon that Seamus Coleman has signed a new five-year contract with the club. It will keep Coleman at Goodison Park until 2022.

The news comes six weeks after Coleman broke his leg while playing for Ireland in a World Cup qualifier against Wales.

The new contract was agreed prior to Coleman leaving Everton for international duty in March. After Coleman suffered the injury, club chairman Bill Kenwright sent the Donegal man a message telling him that the contract offer was still on the table.

Coleman told Everton TV:

I’m delighted to get this signed. I’ve been here for a long time and it’s a special Club that means a lot to me.

Everything had been agreed and I was due to sign it after the international break but unfortunately I got the injury. The Chairman messaged me the night of my injury and said, ‘Don’t worry about it because when you come back this contract is still waiting for you’. That sums up what the Chairman and this Club is all about.

Farhad Moshiri also sent me cards and said the support was always going to be there. I’m delighted with how the Club has handled the situation. Knowing that I was going to come back and sign it has definitely helped things. It’s a massive boost and gives me something to fight for.

I want to prove my worth when I come back and show the Club were right for rewarding me with this long-term contract.

Coleman was signed by Everton in January 2009 and has made 247 appearances for the club since. He will be 33 when his current deal with the club runs out.
