Everton wing-back Seamus Coleman is delighted with his new contract.
Coleman admits he now feels secure at Everton after penning his new deal, but it wasnâ€™t always that way after he arrived with plenty to prove in 2009.
â€śWhen I first signed it was a two-year contract I think and I just looked at it as more of a long-term trial. I was here to try and prove myself and that I was good enough to take the massive step from the League of Ireland to the Premier League here,â€ť he told evertonfc.com.
â€śIt was difficult making the transition but I just went out and tried to play my game and thankfully had a good year of it. It was something Iâ€™d always dreamed about so I just tried to grab it with both hands.
â€śLast year I had some injuries and a dip in form but I kept working hard, which is one of my attributes. Thankfully I got a run in the side in my favourite position this season and I enjoyed it. I think if you work hard enough anything is possible. Some lads are born with loads of natural ability and maybe I wasnâ€™t one of them but Iâ€™ve worked hard growing up and luckily Iâ€™ve got where I wanted to be.
â€śIf you want it bad enough and there is some ability there it can happen for you.
â€śSince Iâ€™ve done it James McLean has come over as well so it proves it can be done.â€ť
