[AMERICANS ABROAD]Everton has signed U.S. national team goalkeeper Tim Howard to a two-year extension that will keep him at the EPL club through the 2017-18 season.

“To have Tim Howard performing as he has been this season," first-year Everton manager Roberto Martinez told evertontv, "I cannot see past him to choose the best goalkeeper in the league. For him, in such an important year with the World Cup around the corner, to commit his future for the long term is an incredible moment for the dressing room. I am extremely proud of Tim’s achievements for the football club. On top of his goalkeeping it’s his overall demeanor and personality in the dressing room. He is a strong leader.”

Everton is in a battle with Arsenal for fourth place in the EPL and a berth in next season's Champions League qualifying.

Howard has allowed only 31 in 33 games, for the second lowest goals-against average in the EPL, and his 13 shutouts are tied for second in the league. He ranks third all-time among Everton players with 293 EPL appearances.

He joined Everton in 2006 from Manchester United. The extension will stretch his stay at Goodison Park to 12 years
