Rodwell pens new Toffees deal

24 May 2010 - 13:37:39

Jack Rodwell has pledged his long-term future to Everton after signing a new five-year contract.

The England Under-21 international had been linked with a £15million move to Manchester United in recent weeks, but the Toffees have now successfully retained one of their prize assets.

The 19-year-old has emerged as a first-team regular this season after making 36 appearances in all competitions.

"I'm very pleased that Jack Rodwell has signed an improved contract because it re-affirms Everton's ambition to challenge the top clubs," manager David Moyes told the club's official website.

"I want to keep all the players we have here to make us stronger in the coming season."

Rodwell is another graduate of the academy system at Goodison Park and can play in either defence of midfield.

He made his first-team debut in December 2007 and has been capped at under-16 level right the way through to the under-21 side by England.

The teenager has followed in the footsteps of Tim Cahill and Seamus Coleman in agreeing new terms with the Toffees in recent weeks.

He is now under contract at Goodison Park until the end of the 2015 season.
