Phil Jagielka has signed a new contract at Goodison until 2017
Phil Jagielka has signed a new deal with Everton that will see him stay at Goodison Park until 2017.
The centre-back has established himself as a key member of David Moyes’s first team since joining from Sheffield United in 2007.
Jagielka has racked up seven goals in 195 games for the Toffees and he was crowned Everton’s player and players’ player of the year in 2009.
Everton 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.
“Discussions have been taking place for a short while and, now they are completed, I would like to thank Phil and his representatives for the professionalism and courtesy shown throughout those negotiations."
Jagielka made his England debut against Trinidad and Tobago in 2008 and his first competitive outing came against Spain the following March.
He has now racked up 16 caps in total, scoring his first international goal against Italy last August.
