Toffees star never wants to leave Goodison Park.
Everton defender Phil Jagielka says he wants to stay at Goodison Park for life after penning a two-year contract extension.
The England international is now set to remain on Merseyside until at least 2017 and the 30-year-old, who joined from Sheffield United in 2007, made it clear he is aiming to stay with The Toffees for the remainder of his playing career.
Jagielka told evertontv: “I hope I do. I love being here and the club have obviously not minded extending my deal for another two years so I’m looking forward to the future.
“I really enjoy playing here. It wasn’t a long discussion to extend my contract – I was delighted to do so.
“I’m proud to be part of this club and especially if we keep going forward the way we are at the moment, maybe there’ll be another contract extension in a few years to come.”
Everton are currently fifth in the Premier League table, with Jagielka having played in all 21 of their top-flight fixtures this term and captained the side in Phil Neville’s absence.
