Leon Osman: Everton midfielder has signed new deal to 2015

The 32-year-old has been at Goodison Park since the start of his career and he was happy to pledge his future to Everton, despite the uncertainty about the club's next manager.

David Moyes ended his long reign at Everton to take charge of Manchester United this month, but Osman had no concerns about remaining on Merseyside.

Osman has enjoyed a successful season, including call-ups to the England squad, and captained the Toffees at times as the team secured a top-six finish.

"I am delighted to have put my signature on another contract and secured another year at the club," said Osman, whose previous deal ran out next year.

"I have been here since I left school, I am a player and a fan, I love coming to work every day and I am delighted that's going to continue.

"We are not quite sure what's going to happen with a manager but I am still delighted to have secured my future here at the club.

"It's time to take the family on holiday now, enjoy it and recharge the batteries for next season."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
