Howard pleased to see Everton teammates signing new contracts

Tim Howard is pleased Everton have managed to secure Phil Jagielka and Joseph Yobo to new contracts.

"It's great news," Howard told evertonTV. "I'm excited for those guys [Jagielka and Yobo] and it's really nice to see how happy they are here and how much they want to stay here.

"That has a knock-on effect. It makes me want to be here, it makes the next guy want to be here.

"If you're offered a new deal you don't really stall over it - you're just delighted the Club feels that way about you.

"It's been a fantastic three years and this is the place I want to be so, for me, the feeling was mutual."
