Everton defender Phil Jagielka has today signed a new contract with the Blues.
The new contract will keep the England international at Goodison Park until 2015, replacing his old deal which was due to expire in 2014.
Since joining the Blues from Sheffield United in 2007 Jagielka has made himself a key member of David Moyes´ squad, as well as earning six England caps.
The news will come as a welcome relief for Evertonians who are enduring a largely forgettable season. David Moyes will be hoping to keep hold of his top players in preparation for next season. With speculation surrounding the future of the likes of Jack Rodwell and Marouane Fellaini, Moyes will surely hope that Jagielka is the first of many to commit to new long term contracts.
