Leon Osman has agreed a new deal which will keep him at Everton until 2015.
The 32-year-old, who has been capped at international level by England, has been at the club since he was an apprentice and has made 284 league appearances.
Osman told evertontv: “I am delighted to have put my signature on another contract and secured another year at the club.
“I have been here since I left school, I am a player and a fan, I love coming to work every day and I am delighted that’s going to continue.”
Although the Toffees have yet to appoint a new manager, this was not going to stand in Osman’s way:
“We are not quite sure what’s going to happen with a manager but I am still delighted to have secured my future here at the club. It’s time to take the family on holiday now, enjoy it and recharge the batteries for next season.”
