Everton Activates Doucoure Contract Option

Everton can confirm the Club has activated the option to extend Abdoulaye Doucoure’s contract until the end of June 2024.

The Blues moved to add a further 12 months to the midfielder’s existing deal before the stipulated deadline.

Doucoure, who has made 94 appearances and has 18 goal involvements (nine goals, nine assists) for Everton since completing a switch from Watford in September 2020, has become a key figure since the arrival of manager Sean Dyche in late January.

Goals from the Mali international at Nottingham Forest and Chelsea helped earn the Toffees a pair of 2-2 draws, while an excellent double at Brighton & Hove Albion set Everton on their way to a 5-1 victory.
