Five-Year Contract For McCarthy

James McCarthy has signed a new five-year contract with Everton.

The Republic of Ireland international midfielder put pen-to-paper at Finch Farm today (Thursday).

The 24-year-old’s deal runs until June 2020 and comes almost two years after his arrival on Merseyside from Wigan Athletic.

McCarthy, who has made 76 appearances for the Club, exclusively told evertontv: “I’m buzzing and delighted to be committing my future long-term to Everton. I’ve loved every minute I’ve been here, with the fans having made me feel so welcome from day one, as well as the players and staff.

“This is a brilliant club with a brilliant fanbase and what we want to try to do is bring some success here and push forward.

"The gaffer is trying to build a team and a squad for the long-term and I’m excited to be a part of that and to be a part of this team."
