Tim Howard: Has signed a new deal with Everton

Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard has been hailed as the Premier League's best goalkeeper by manager Roberto Martinez after signing a contract extension tying him to the club until 2018.

The 35-year-old American has been with the Toffees since 2006, initially moving on a loan basis from Manchester United before the clubs made the arrangement permanent.

He was due to reach the end of his stay at Goodison Park at the end of the 2015/16 season but has agreed to a further two years.

Martinez, whose team are vying with Arsenal for a Champions League place, told Everton's website: "It is fantastic news. To have Tim Howard performing as he has been this season, I cannot see past him to choose the best goalkeeper in the league.

"For him, in such an important year with the World Cup around the corner, to commit his future for the long term is an incredible moment for the dressing room.

"I am extremely proud of Tim's achievements for the football club. On top of his goalkeeping it's his overall demeanour and personality in the dressing room. He is a strong leader."

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
