Donegal's Seamus Coleman has committed his long-term future to Roberto Martinez's Everton.

Coleman's fine form last term also saw him named in the PFA Team of the Year, while internationally he captained Republic of Ireland for the first time during a friendly against giants Germany.

Coleman scored seven times in 41 games last season and has become an ever-present in the team having moved to the club from Sligo Rovers in 2009.

"With how much I love playing at Everton, I was delighted to get the chance to sign another contract," Coleman told "I've been at Everton five years now and I love everything around the place. I love working with all the players, the staff, the coaching staff - everything. It was a very happy decision to make.

"With the manager and some of the players we have, we're going to the right places."

Coleman follows in the footsteps of manager Roberto Martinez, who put pen-to-paper on a new five-year contract earlier this month
