Everton defender Sylvain Distin will remain at the club for at least one more season after signing a contract extension until the end of the 2012/13 campaign.

The veteran defender enjoyed an impressive campaign as Everton finished 7th in the Barclays Premier League, but his contract was due to expire this Summer.

Distin, 34, has proven to be a key player for the Toffees since arriving in 2009 from Portsmouth and Evertonians will be delighted with this news.
