Everton midfielder Muhamed Besic has signed a new five-and-a-half-year contract with the club.

The Bosnia international, who joined from Ferencvaros for ?4.8million in the summer of 2014, has been rewarded for some impressive displays this season.

Besic had already this season triggered a clause in his existing contract which entitled him to a 12-month extension by reaching 25 Barclays Premier League appearances for the club but Everton manager Roberto Martinez was keen to tie the player down to a much longer term.

It is more good news for the club in the wake of the weekend's investment by Iranian billionaire Farhad Moshiri, who bought a 49.9 per cent stake in the Toffees for a reported ?85million.

Utility man Bryan Oviedo signed a new contract earlier this month while Everton are also hopeful of tying down Ross Barkley to an improved deal this summer.

"I'm really happy to have signed a new contract with a club such as Everton," Besic told evertontv.

"After a year and a half with the club it makes me proud that they have given me a new deal."

"When I first arrived here it was difficult for me but now I feel at home. The supporters, as well as the manager, the staff and my team-mates, have all made me welcome at the club and I feel really happy.

"It was very easy when I heard about it. It was clear that I wanted to stay and sign the new contract.

"When people look at my game, before and now, I think I have improved a lot in many different areas.

"But I am still adapting to the league and I will continue to work hard and give my best."

Besic, 23, is currently working his way back to fitness from a hamstring injury and while he will not be involved in Tuesday's match at Aston Villa he has a chance of returning to the squad for Saturday's visit of West Ham.
