    Tim Howard joined Everton, initially on a season long loan, in the summer of 2006.

    He arrived from Manchester United, where he had fallen behind Edwin van der Sar in the goalkeeping pecking order.

    Nonetheless, he made 77 appearances for United before agreeing the switch to Everton.

    He began his career in his native USA, playing for the New York/New Jersey Metrostars, where he eventually replaced USA keeper Tony Meola as the first choice in goal.

    He moved to Man Utd in 2003 and replaced Fabien Barthez.

    Three years later he arrived at Everton and gave consistently impressive performances in goal.

    Indeed, such was his impact that in February 2007 Howard's move was made permanent. An undisclosed fee was agreed with Manchester United and the keeper signed a lucrative four year deal.

    In the summer of 2007, Tim collected his first piece of silverware since his move to Goodison. The goalkeeper was an instrumental figure for the USA as they beat Mexico 2-1 to win the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

    A finger injury sustained on international duty disrupted Howard's start to the 2007/08 season with the goalkeeper missing four games including one against his former team Manchester United.

    But once he returned Howard enjoyed an excellent season. Ever reliable and regularly producing excellent saves, the keeper was one short of equalling Neville Southall's record of 15 clean sheets in the league.

    He continued as the model of consistency on the 2008/09 campaign, and saved two penalties in the FA Cup semi-final against former side United as Everton triumphed.

    Howard helped his USA side to the Confederations Cup final in the summer of 2009, winning the Golden Gloves award in the process.

    He was ever-present in the Premier League as Everton's number one for the second-successive season during the 2009/10 campaign. By the end of that season Howard had made 109 consecutive top flight appearances, keeping clean sheets in 55 of those games.

    At the end of the season Howard was selected in Bob Bradley's USA squad for the World Cup in South Africa.

    The 'keeper played in all four of America's games helping them top Group C, which included England, before being knocked out in the second round by Ghana.

    Howard faced competition for the starting spot in goal from Slovakian international Jan Mucha in 2010/11 but held onto the gloves and continued to turn in a string of solid performances.

    In March 2012 Howard penned a new deal keeping him at Goodison until 2016 and finished the campaign in typically reliable form.

    On 20 August 2012, the American set a new record for consecutive Premier League appearances for one club with his 184th game in a row.

    Howard suffered an injury against Oldham Athletic in February 2013 in an FA Cup replay which meant that he fell two games short of breaking Neville Southall’s club record of 212 consecutive league appearances.

    Contracted until: June 2016.
