Everton duo Tony Hibbert and Leon Osman, who have 18 months on their contracts, are to be rewarded with deal extensions at Goodison Park.

Toffees boss David Moyes confirmed full-back Hibbert and midfielder Osman are on the verge of committing their futures to the club.

"They are not coming to the end of their contracts, they have both got 18 months left on their contracts - but we are going to extend them," Moyes told the club's official website.

"It looks as if both players are very close to agreeing their deals."
