Osman, Hibbert set to open Everton contract talks

Leon Osman and Tony Hibbert are poised to become the latest Everton players to commit their long term futures to Everton.

Having wrapped up deals with Tim Cahill, Mikel Arteta and Andrew Johnson in the last six months and given lengthy contracts to the players they have signed recently, the Blues are keen to sort out business with those whose deals are close to running out, says the Liverpool Echo.

Since making the breakthrough from Everton's Academy, Osman and Hibbert have become important members of the squad and between them have clocked up more than 350 appearances, the majority of which have come during David Moyes' reign.
