Besic commits to Everton with long-term deal

Muhamed Besic has committed himself to Everton by signing a brand new contract with the club.

The 23-year-old midfielder has put pen to a five-and-a-half-year deal with the Toffees which will see him remain at Goodison Park until the summer of 2021.

Besic, who joined Everton from Hungarian club Ferencvaros in July 2014, is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury but the signing of a new deal has brightened his season as he looks ahead to the future with the Merseyside club.

“I'm really happy to have signed a new contract with a club such as Everton," Besic told evertontv.

“After a year and a half with the Club, it makes me proud that they have given me a new deal.

“When I first arrived here it was difficult for me, but now I feel at home. The supporters, as well as the manager, the staff and my teammates, have all made me welcome at the Club and I feel really happy.

“It was very easy when I heard about it. It was clear that I wanted to stay and sign the new contract.

“When people look at my game, before and now, I think I have improved a lot in many different areas. But, like you have seen, I am still adapting to the league and I will continue to work hard and give my best.

“We always speak about things we want to achieve, Europe and other things. We have to show it on the pitch and do it. The next 12 games and also Chelsea in the FA Cup, I hope we can do our speaking on the pitch."
