Ellis Simms happy signing new Everton contract

Ellis Simms has signed a new three-year contract with Everton.

The 20-year-old's previous deal was due to run out at the end of the season. He is now committed to June 2024.

Simms, who spent the second-half of last season on loan with Blackpool in League One, said: “Everton is a massive club and I love it here.

“From Under-16s level to now, the Club has helped me grow as a person and as a player.

“The support the Club has given me has been fantastic and I'm very grateful to sign this new deal.

“Last season at Blackpool I learned a lot in a short space of time by coming up against different styles of play. It's helped me become a better player.

“It gave me that taste of playing men's football and now I am eager and ready to kick on and play at the highest level I can."
