Everton captain Phil Jagielka has no regrets penning new deal

Everton captain Phil Jagielka has no regrets sticking with the club this season.

This summer, the defender opted to stay at Goodison and battle for his shirt, penning a contract extension in August that ties him down until 2019.

He told the Liverpool Echo: “There were options to try and leave and go and play regular football, either in the same league at a lesser team but even in a different league but I'm at a great club here and I still want to fight for my place.

“I'm proud to still be captain and to try and help out both on and off the pitch. Until I stop getting those emotions, I'm definitely in the right place."
