Everton captain Seamus Coleman has signed a new one-year contract that keeps him at the club until next summer.

The 34-year-old will spend a 15th season at Goodison Park as he continues his recovery from a medial knee ligament injury sustained in May.

"Everyone knows how much Everton means to me which is why it is special to sign this new contract and continue to play for this great club," Coleman said on the club's official website.

"From the moment I joined more than 14 years ago, the support my family and I have had from our fans and everyone around the club has been amazing and I never take for granted just how fortunate I am to represent Everton. That has included the honour of wearing the captain’s armband in recent years.

"I’m keen to continue helping my team-mates in any way I can, while passing on my experience to the younger lads and contributing on the pitch as much as possible.

"We know the past couple of seasons have not been good enough for Everton Football Club. But I can assure our fans that I’ll continue to give everything to put that right and, under the manager and his staff, our players will know what is expected of them for the season ahead."

Since joining from Sligo Rovers in January 2009, Coleman has played 352 times in the Premier League.

He is three appearances away from breaking former goalkeeper Tim Howard's record as Everton’s highest appearance-maker in the competition.

"We are all pleased Seamus has signed his new deal. I have hugely enjoyed working with him since becoming Everton manager," Sean Dyche added.

"He is a top professional who helps to set high standards every day and makes it clear what it means to play for Everton Football Club.

"His quality and experience continue to be of great use and will do again once he’s back fit."
