Everton close to securing new deal with Cahill

Published Add your comment

Everton are close to agreeing a new long-term contract with inspirational midfielder Tim Cahill.

The Australia international has two years remaining on his present deal but manager David Moyes is keen to secure an extension. Everton are confident of concluding a deal with the 30-year-old before next month's World Cup in South Africa.

"We are at an advanced stage of negotiation with Tim and his representatives," said chief executive Robert Elstone.

"We would be hopeful of concluding an extension to Tim's current deal and to put pen to paper on a new four-year contract before he departs for the World Cup."

Cahill has scored 56 goals in 209 appearances for the Toffees since moving from Millwall in 2004.

Moyes has made agreeing new contracts with key players one of his priorities this summer.

The club are also in discussions with highly-rated duo Steven Pienaar and Jack Rodwell over improved terms.
