Defensive duo agrees new Toffees deals

Published Add your comment

Everton defenders Phil Jagielka and Joseph Yobo have both agreed new five-year contracts with the club.

Jagielka, currently recovering from a knee ligament operation which is likely to sideline him until the middle of August, was this week named the Toffees' player of the season.

"Everton are delighted contract negotiations with both Joseph Yobo and Phil Jagielka have now been successfully concluded," said a club statement. "Both players will sign new five-year deals with the club imminently."

Reports earlier this week had suggested Yobo was unsettled at the club but his agreement of a new deal puts paid to any thoughts of him leaving Goodison Park.
