Everton defenders Joseph Yobo and Phil Jagielka have agreed to sign five-year contract extensions.

The new contracts will keep them at the club until 2014.

"Everton are delighted contract negotiations with both Joseph Yobo and Phil Jagielka have now been successfully concluded," the club said in a statement. "Both players will sign new five-year deals with the club imminently."

Jagielka, who joined the Toffees from Sheffield United for £4m July 2007, was named Everton's player of the season earlier this week but will not play again until August as he recovers from knee surgery.

Yobo, who is also captain of Nigeria, joined Everton in 2002.
