Everton defender Phil Jagielka has signed a two-year contract extension to keep him at the club until 2017. The 30-year-old England international has established himself as one of the Premier League's most consistent defenders since moving from Sheffield United for £4million in 2007.

Everton's chief executive Robert Elstone said: "We are delighted Phil has agreed to commit his long-term future here at Goodison Park.

"Phil is a hugely important and influential player and I, like many Evertonians, look forward to seeing him play in a blue shirt for many years to come."
