Blues Secure Double Contract Boost

by Matthew Gamble @efc_mattgamble

Victor Anichebe and Seamus Coleman have signed new contracts at Everton.

Both players have penned four-and-a-half year deals, keeping them at the Club until 2015.

Coleman, 22, has been one of this season's success stories, becoming a regular in the Blues' midfield and weighing in with five goals.

Academy product Anichebe, also 22, is back in the first team fray after recovering from a knee injury he suffered in pre-season.

He started the 2-2 draw against Liverpool at the weekend and was instrumental in setting up the second Everton goal for Jermaine Beckford.

His new contract ends speculation linking him with a move away from the Everton, with his previous contract set to expire in the summer.

Coleman signed a new contract in May last year but his progress this term has been impressive enough to see him handed a new deal.

He has made 22 appearances this term, while Anichebe has three starts and three substitute appearances.
