Osman extends Everton deal

Everton midfielder Leon Osman has agreed a one-year extension to his current contract, the Barclays Premier League club have announced.

It means Osman, who had his testimonial in August, will now continue his career with the Toffees until at least the summer of 2016.

The 33-year-old came through the Merseysiders' academy and made his professional debut while on loan at Carlisle in 2002-03.

He made his senior Everton bow later that season and was then on loan at Derby in the following campaign.

Osman has subsequently gone on to take his appearances tally for the Goodison Park outfit to almost 400 games and has scored more than 50 goals for them.

He has two senior England caps, which he won in late 2012 and early 2013.
