Last Updated: 06/11/14 4:52pm
Everton midfielder Leon Osman has agreed a one-year contract extension and will remain with the Premier League side until at least the summer of 2016.
Osman, 33, came through the academy at Goodison Park and bounced back from a serious knee injury he suffered as a youngster to have a hugely successful career for the Merseyside club.
He made his professional debut while on loan with Carlisle during the 2002/3 campaign but has gone on to play almost 400 times for Everton, scoring over 50 goals.
A lynchpin of the side during the long and successful reign of David Moyes, he remains an important member of the squad under Roberto Martinez and had his testimonial match in August.
Osman has a pair of England caps to his name, having featured against Sweden in November 2012 and San Marino in March 2013.
