The 32-year-old attributes much of his affection for the club to manager David Moyes and hopes he can keep working alongside the Scot for a while longer.
"It's (Everton) a place I love to be," said the former New York Metro Stars player. "I don't want to leave. This game is a business sometimes so there is that side to it but I'm happy, I'm happier than I've ever been.
"It's hard to speculate but my heart is there for the club. Part of that is the fact that we've got an unbelievable coach but again things happen and times change but the club always stays the same so I hope that I can be there."
