Osman &Amp; Hibbert Extend Contracts

by Matthew Gamble @efc_mattgamble

Everton have been handed a major boost ahead of the trip to Tottenham with Leon Osman and Tony Hibbert both agreeing contract extensions.

The homegrown pair have put pen to paper on two year extensions to their existing deals, meaning both will be contracted to Everton until 2014.

Osman, 29, has previously stated his desire to finish his career at Everton, while his teammate Hibbert, also 29, is the Blues' longest serving player.

Between them they have made over 500 appearances for Everton.

The pair are both products of Everton's prolific academy system and were part of the 1998 FA Youth Cup winning squad.

Midfielder Osman told evertontv: "I'm feeling great, it has been under discussion for a few weeks and I'm really happy to put pen to paper.

"There was never any question that I wanted to extend. We are really happy to be at a Club of this stature.

Right back Hibbert added: "It is good to have a couple more years on top of what I had. We have come through as two local lads and made a good career so it is pleasing."
