Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini has signed a new five-year deal to keep him at Goodison Park until the summer of 2016.

Fellaini, 23, has become a key player for manager David Moyes since his £15m transfer from Standard Liege in 2008.

Chief executive Robert Elstone told the club’s website: “We are delighted to have secured the services of Marouane for the long term.

“Marouane has been a hugely influential player for Everton since his arrival.”

This is great news for Everton fans, especially given their lowly Premier League position and their precarious financial position. The Belgian international has become a fan favourite at Goodison Park and is constantly linked with a move away from the Merseyside club and David Moyes must have had some concern about his ability to keep the former Standard Liege man at the club, not least after the loss of mercurial midfielder Mikel Arteta in the summer.

The rangy attack minded midfielder has been at Everton three and a bit years and though his performances of late have not matched his energetic first campaign at the club he is still a hugely important player who links midfield and attack. A position that is all the more important given the lack of many real goalscoring options up front.
