Toffees duo pen new deals
02 May 2007 - 15:14:42
Everton's teenage duo James Vaughan and Victor Anichebe have penned extended contracts that will keep them at Goodison for another four years.
Vaughan is the Premiership's youngest ever goalscorer - netting in the 4-0 victory against Crystal Palace in April 2005 when he was only 16.
Now 18, Vaughan has scored four goals in 15 Premiership appearances for David Moyes' side.
He has had a bad run of injuries though and was sidelined for over a year with a serious knee problem.
The teenager then severed an artery in last month's 1-1 draw with Bolton Wanderers that sidelined him for a further three weeks before returning to action in the home defeat to Manchester United on Saturday.
Anichebe made his Everton debut when he came on as a substitute in last season's FA Cup fourth round draw with Chelsea.
The 19-year-old has gone on to score five first-team goals in six starts and 19 appearances from the substitutes bench for the club.
Both players are products of the Everton youth academy.
