Phil Jagielka: Signed new deal last week

Everton defender Phil Jagielka wants to see out the rest of his career with the club.

The Toffees announced last week that Jagielka had signed a two-year contract extension that will keep him at Goodison Park until 2017.

And the 30-year-old England international, who joined Everton from Sheffield United in 2007, is aiming to stay with the Merseyside outfit for the remainder of his playing days.

Jagielka told evertontv: "I hope I do. I love being here and the club have obviously not minded extending my deal for another two years so I'm looking forward to the future.

"I really enjoy playing here. It wasn't a long discussion to extend my contract - I was delighted to do so.

"I'm proud to be part of this club and especially if we keep going forward the way we are at the moment, maybe there'll be another contract extension in a few years to come."

Everton are currently fifth in the Barclays Premier League table, with Jagielka having played in all 21 of their top-flight fixtures this term and captained the side in Phil Neville's absence.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
