Everton defender Sylvain Distin has signed a new one-year contract extension which keeps him at Goodison Park until the summer of 2014.
The 35-year-old's existing deal expired this summer but manager David Moyes was always confident of extending the Frenchman's stay.
Distin has made 19 first-team appearances this season.
He has appeared in all but three Premier League matches this season and his partnership with Phil Jagielka is the manager's preferred first choice.
Jagielka and fellow defender Seamus Coleman also recently signed new, long-term deals.
