Seamus Signs New Blues Deal

During his eight years at Goodison Park he has made 247 appearances in all competitions for the Blues, scoring 24 goals.

And, after committing his long-term future to the Club, the Republic of Ireland captain said he’s really excited about what the next five years could hold.

“I’m really excited by the way things are going and the players we have signed,” he said.

“This season has been good and we’ve got Europa League football next season to look forward to. It’s exciting and it’s all about pushing ourselves. I’m really happy that I am going to be here for the foreseeable future.

“I think I’ve been very lucky with the Club that I moved over from Ireland to join. I left my family back home and I joined another family over here. There have been ups and downs in my playing career - like everything - but thankfully the Club reward you when you are doing well.

“This was an important contract. I’m at a good age now and I think the Club are showing good ambition and going in the right direction, so it’s really exciting.”

Coleman also confirmed his recovery has ‘well and truly started’ as he looks forward to the day when he can pull on an Everton shirt again.

“It’s a case of not doing too much too soon – it’s just baby steps at the moment - but I am getting on well so far,” he added.

“I’m starting to put more weight through the leg and I have got no pain. I’m back doing a good bit in the gym and in the pool. I’m doing exercise every day, so the recovery has well and truly started. I’m really looking forward to putting on that Blue shirt again.”
