Barkley extends Everton deal

Everton teenager Ross Barkley has signed a new four-and-a-half year deal with the club.

The highly-rated academy graduate made his first-team debut in the Toffees' opening game of the season against QPR. He turned 18 a fortnight ago and that made him eligible to sign a lengthy deal to stay at Goodison.

"We are pleased but obviously not at all surprised that Ross has agreed his first long-term contract with the club," said chairman Bill Kenwright.
