There had been speculation that Manchester United had been interested in making Coleman the latest in a line of transfers along the M6, after David Moyes and Marouane Fellaini made the move last season. But the new deal will see the 25-year-old Irishman remain at Goodison Park until 2019.

Coleman expressed his delight on putting pen to paper, saying: "It was a very happy decision. I've been at Everton for five years and I love everything about the place."

The full back began his career in the League of Ireland Premier League with Sligo Rovers before making the move to Merseyside in 2009. After a successful loan spell with Blackpool he returned to Goodison Park and established himself as a regular fixture in the Toffees’ right back berth.

Coleman really came into his own in 2013/14, being named in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year and even grabbing six Premier League goals on forays forward from his defensive position. He is also a regular in Martin O’Neill’s Republic of Ireland team, with 23 international caps to his name to date.

The length of Coleman’s contract underlines Everton’s desire to build for the future, after they also secured new deals with Tim Howard, Leighton Baines, Sylvain Distin and boss Roberto Martinez.
