Everton's Osman: Hibbert one of the best full-backs in England

Leon Osman believes Everton teammate Tony Hibbert is up there with the best full-backs in England.

The 30-year old has been a consistent performer for the Toffees during his 11-year career and recently won his starting spot back from captain Phil Neville prompting praise from midfielder Osman.

"It's credit to him, he's a top player and I've been saying for years that he's one of the best full-backs in the country and he's finally getting his rewards for that," Osman told the Liverpool Daily Post.

"He loves playing against an out-and-out winger where he's going to get a tough battle and it's good to finally see him get the plaudits he deserves."
