Dominic Calvert-Lewin has signed a new five-year contract with Everton.
Striker Calvert-Lewin, who has penned a deal until June 2025, has hit eight goals in his past 10 Premier League games and is the division’s leading scorer in the period since Boxing Day.
The 22-year-old has started 76 games and appeared 48 times from the bench after joining Everton from Sheffield United in August 2016.
He has scored 15 times in all competitions this season and become a focal point of manager Carlo Ancelotti’s attack, starting all 10 league games since the Italian was appointed back in December.
Calvert-Lewin’s 13 Premier League goals in 2019/20 have come from 21 starts and five substitute appearances.
“This is a very proud day. It has been enjoyable for me since the start at Everton and I am enjoying every day coming into training and every minute on the football pitch,” Calvert-Lewin told evertontv.
“The turnaround we have had since December is fantastic and the belief in ourselves we are back up there and can compete with the best is well and truly there.
“And with a man like Carlo leading the ship it makes it easier for us to believe in the process.
“We want to be in Europe and competing in the top competitions.
“It would mean that bit more to win trophies here because of the journey I have been on with Everton and Evertonians.
“It feels personal and that is how I like it.
“Personally, I want to get to that next level.
“I like to think I have shown I am ready to live up to the expectations of being Everton’s number nine.
“But I am well aware of how much I need to improve and how much better I can do.
"I love where I am and the position I am in and I love playing for Everton Football Club."
