Leon Osman was delighted to sign a new contract keeping him at Everton until 2015.
Osman, 32, has had one of his best seasons for the Blues and his existing deal was set to end next year.
He has previously stated his desire to stay at Goodison Park for the entirety of his playing career and this deal means he will remain a rare one-club man.
The 2012/13 campaign was a landmark season for the academy graduate. In January he celebrated a decade of Everton service after well as winning his first England caps. He also captained Everton in the 2-0 victory over Manchester City - a game in which he opened the scoring with a magnificent long-range effort.
Osman told evertontv: "I am delighted to have put my signature on another contract and secured another year at the club.
"I have been here since I left school, I am a player and a fan, I love coming to work every day and I am delighted that's going to continue."
The midfielder explained that uncertainty over Everton's next manager hadn't affected his desire to remain a Blue.
"We are not quite sure what's going to happen with a manager but I am still delighted to have secured my future here at the Club," he said.
"It's time to take the family on holiday now, enjoy it and recharge the batteries for next season."
