GOOD NEWS!

From the OS

"Joleon Lescott has become the latest of Everton's young guns to pledge his long term future to the club.

evertonfc.com can exclusively reveal that the England international defender has agreed a new contract which will keep him at Goodison Park until the summer of 2012."

It might be because he will be approaching 30 in 2012, and they only offer one year contracts to 30 year olds. :) Maybe.

Yeah but the extra year would mean an extra 4m (or so) in transfer fee if someone was to bid for him

True didn't think of it that way but also guessing we going to be paying around an extra 4m in the 4 years he here in increase in wages.

Still good though that he is happy enough to stay at the club with reports during the trasnfer window that the Arse and Man U are after him

Yeah, Bill and co are also being quite clever in getting the young players to commit to Everton during such a high in the season - do you think Cahill, Lescott etc would be so willing to sign new long term contracts if we were in Newcastle's shoes?

Whatever the motivation, this is the best bit of news for a while from Everton...and shows it is not just us the fans being optimistic!

Great news. Hopefully he can be moved back to central defence soon too.
