Carlo Ancelotti is in no rush to enter contract negotiations with Seamus Coleman as he says the Donegal man has an endless deal with Everton.
Coleman's current contract runs out at the end of next season.
"I don’t think we have to talk about the [Coleman’s] contract," Ancelotti told Everton TV.
The contract that Seamus has with the club and this team is forever.
It doesn’t mean one-year long or two years long.
Seamus’ contract with Everton is forever.
Last month, Ancelotti mentioned Coleman among some of the best captains to have played under him.
"Seamus is an example for the others," said the Italian.
"In this sense, he is the same as John Terry, Paolo Maldini, Sergio Ramos; all great models for their teammates."
Thus far this season, Coleman has made 26 appearances for Everton with 20 of those being in the league.
Everton Director of Football Marcel Brands said last week that he wants the Ireland captain to remain at Goodison Park beyond his playing career.
"He’s not only a fantastic player but a great character in the dressing room, a great professional," said Brands.
"I’m now already in talks with him to get him involved in, let’s say, things off the pitch.
"He’s definitely someone I really want to keep in the club after he finishes his career. He’s a great example for everyone."
