Everton defender Phil Jagielka has signed a two-year contract extension to keep him at the club until 2017.

The 30-year-old England international has established himself as one of the most consistent defenders in the Premier League since moving to Goodison Park from Sheffield United for £4million in 2007.

Toffees chief executive Robert Elstone told the club's official website: "We are delighted Phil has agreed to commit his long term future here at Goodison Park.

"Phil is a hugely important and influential player and I, like many Evertonians, look forward to seeing him play in a Blue shirt for many years to come.

"Discussions have been taking place for a short while and, now they are completed, I would like to thank Phil and his representatives for the professionalism and courtesy shown throughout those negotiations."
