Phil Neville has entered the final stages of contract talks with Everton over a new deal which means he will see out his illustrious career at Goodison, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Neville has made no secret of the fact that he hopes Everton will be his last club, and the captain is continuing to have a major influence on the side at the age of 34.

Everton are hopeful of making an announcement in the next two days, and will prolong Neville’s contract an extra year to 2013.


“I feel as fit as I ever have, and want to continue for as long as possible, at least the next two seasons – hopefully at Everton,” Neville said.

“From a personal point of view it's been one of most enjoyable seasons. I've enjoyed it more than any other. But at the start of the season, when you come back from injury you question yourself.”

While rumours of a move to Tottenham have surfaced between January and June, David Moyes is reportedly ready to sign the deal with Neville and put to rest any speculation that the Everton skipper may leave.
