Branthwaite signs new Everton deal

-

Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite has signed a new four-year deal at Goodison Park.

The highly-rated 21-year-old has thrived this season following a spell on loan at PSV Eindhoven, emerging as a key player in the Toffees’ fight to avoid relegation.

He told evertontv: “The stature of the club, how much of a family it is at Everton and how I just love playing here in front of the fans were key reasons for me signing.

“To sign this new contract was to show the commitment I have for the club and show how much it means to me to play for Everton.

“Since I joined, I’ve felt a connection with the club. The fans have been really good with me. For the first game I played, the cheer I got when my name was read out just gave me massive confidence to go out there and play my best game.

“Since I got in the team, the fans have shown me real support and that gives me confidence, especially for a young player. I can’t thank them enough.”

Branthwaite has started each of Everton’s last five games and has received plenty of plaudits for his displays in a struggling team.

Everton director of football Kevin Thelwell said: “Jarrad is an excellent player with huge potential and his new contract is richly deserved after the way he has played for us so far this season, having gained key experience on loan at PSV last term.

“It is a great boost for Everton to have a young player with Jarrad’s talent commit his long-term future to the club.

“His performances so far this season have impressed everyone and given a glimpse of his exciting potential. We look forward to him getting even better in the years ahead in the royal blue of Everton.”
