Luke Garbutt: New two-year deal for Everton defender

Everton left-back Luke Garbutt has signed a new two-year contract which ties him to the Premier League club until the summer of 2015.

The 20-year-old has put pen to paper on the deal after returning from international duty with England at the U20 World Cup in Turkey.

Garbutt joined Everton from Leeds United in July 2009 and has made one first-team appearance for the Toffees so far, as a substitute in the 5-0 Capital One Cup win over Leyton Orient in August last season.

He was loaned out to Cheltenham Town in the 2011/12 campaign and made 37 appearances for the League Two outfit, scoring two goals.

An ankle injury hampered Garbutt last season but he was a regular member of Everton's side in the U21 Premier League after returning to full fitness.

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
