Seamus Coleman gave all Everton fans a New Year’s treat when he confirmed that he had signed a new contract with the club on the last day of 2012, a contract that will keep the midfielder at Goodison Park until the summer of 2018.

Coleman, who joined Everton from Sligo Rovers in 2009, has developed into a strong member of David Moyes’ squad and made his 14th appearance of the season at Stoke in mid-December before suffering a hamstring injury that kept him out of the busy Christmas period.

He is an integral part of the Toffees’ evolution as Moyes grows this side into a genuine challenger for a UEFA Champions League spot and after confirming his loyalty for the next five-and-a-half years will play a major part in Everton’s new era.

“I’m glad to get it all done and to sign for so long at a club like Everton is a great achievement – I want to be here for as long as possible,” he told EvertonTV. “I’m going to keep working as hard as I have done since day one and keep improving every day in training to impress the manager.”

Indeed, Toffees fans browsing the Premier League tips are already expecting big things from Coleman, who has developed into a full Irish international and is part of a strong Everton midfield.

Alongside Leon Osman, Marouane Fellaini, Steven Pienaar, and Steven Naismith Everton have one of the most attractive and entertaining midfields in the Premier League.

At 24 years of age, he is one for the future and it is vital Moyes keeps young yet experienced blood like Coleman at the club. For Everton have pooled a wealth of young talent and are now primed to climb up the league table in years to come, with men like Coleman and Fellaini leading the way.

Everton are 53/9 to qualify for Europe’s top competition, according to the Champions league Betfair webpage.
