, who has joined

Everton

in 2009 from Sligo Rovers and has been their captain since 2019, has signed a new deal with the club, committing him to the club until 2023.

The 32-year-old has made 350 appearances for the club, proving himself as an important part of the team. Last season, he played 35 Premier League games for the Toffees, and he is determined to stay a key part of the team under their new boss Rafael Benitez.

"It's a massive honor to extend my time here,"

Coleman told evertontv.

"It was about getting my head down and to keep working hard like I've always done, and the club decided to reward me with that. It's something I'm very happy with.

"Hopefully now I can keep going as long as possible, give my experience to the younger lads, help and support them in any way I can, and contribute on the pitch as much as possible."

He has also talked about the club's long wait for a major trophy insisting that he is determined to help the Toffees reach for glory again. The fans are still waiting to win a major trophy after winning the FA Cup in 1995.

"I keep saying it and make no apologies for it, winning is what we're here to do,"

Coleman said

"The whole football club's vision is to break that barrier (to win silverware again). My job in the process is to be sure we are doing all the right things behind the scenes, on the training pitch, the best way possible.

"It's about being the best we can every day, making sure we demand more off each other. It's something that I need to do, the senior players need to do and the new players need to do.

"It's very easy to sit here and say it but we all need to show the right attitude at the club and hopefully that can help us going forward."
