American goalkeeper Tim Howard has extended his contract with English Premier League club Everton through 2016.
The 33-year-old has played 256 games for Everton since joining from Manchester United in 2006, initially on loan before signing a permanent deal in February 2007.
“It’s a place that is home for me,” Howard said in an Everton statement. “When you have a really good relationship in life and both sides are eager to continue and keep that going, it’s a no-brainer. This hasn’t been a knockdown, drawn-out type of negotiation with meetings or anything like that. They were very happy to keep me here and I was very, very happy to stay.”
