Transfers DONE DEAL: Seamus Coleman signs contract extension at Everton

Captain Seamus Coleman will play in Everton’s final season at Goodison Park – and his 16th in a proud and distinguished career for the Club – after signing a new one-year contract until the end of June 2025.

The popular 35-year-old defender, who moved to Merseyside from Sligo Rovers in January 2009 for £60,000, has committed his future with Sean Dyche’s squad for 2024/25 to continue his loyal and sterling service in royal blue.

Coleman holds the Everton record for most ever Premier League appearances (364), while his 422 matches in all competitions has the Irishman 13th on the Club’s all-time list, 11 behind Dixie Dean and Leon Osman in joint 10th.The right-back was appointed Everton captain in 2019 and has gone on to lead the Toffees 133 times – just 10 players have skippered the Blues more often – earning plaudits across football for his leadership qualities and passion for his Club and country.

Coleman has also captained the Republic of Ireland, earning 72 caps to date following his international debut in 2011. After agreeing his new one-year deal, the fans’ favourite admitted his love for Everton and desire to help the team in the final season at Goodison before the Club’s move to a world-class new waterfront stadium for the start of 2025/26 proved key to his decision.

“Everyone knows what Everton means to me, and I’m very proud and honoured to sign a new contract and to keep playing for this special club in the best league in the world,” Coleman told evertontv.

“I give it my all for the Football Club and I’m just really happy to extend my time here. I’m going to cherish and enjoy every moment.“It’s hard to believe it’s going to be our last season at Goodison, such a special place to me and every Evertonian. Of course, I want to be part of that.

“I still feel I can do a job for this football club on and off the pitch. This being our last season at Goodison is a nice way to go into the campaign but I wouldn’t have signed the contract if I didn’t feel capable of contributing to the team.

“I’ve just played two matches for my country. I feel good and I want to help the lads on the pitch. I’m still enjoying it so what better place to do that than at the Club you love?

“I think the manager steadied that ship massively last season with our performances. I just want to be part of that and to continue to be a part of this football club.”
