Everton midfielder Leon Osman has signed a new contract, which will keep him at the club until 2015.

The 32-year-old, whose previous deal was due to expire at the end of June 2014, has been with Everton since joining as a trainee in 2000.

Osman has scored eight goals this season and made his senior England debut in November 2012.

He said: "I am a player and a fan, I love coming to work every day and I am delighted that's going to continue."

Everton are currently looking for a new manager after David Moyes left the club to replace Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.

Osman added: "We are not quite sure what's going to happen with a manager but I am still delighted to have secured my future here at the club.

"It's time to take the family on holiday now, enjoy it and recharge the batteries for next season."
