The 25-year-old featured 41 times under Roberto Martinez last season, earning a place in the PFA Team of the Year in the process, and ends speculation linking him with Arsenal

13/2 Everton are 13/2 with bet365 to finish in the top four next season
The 25-year-old was an integral part of Roberto Martinez's plans last season, making 41 appearances, as he was named in the PFA Team of the Year.

Coleman's effectiveness both in defence and attack - scoring seven goals last term - has reportedly attracted interest from Arsenal, who are looking for a replacement for Bacary Sagna.

But the Republic of Ireland international is excited by Everton's prospects under Martinez and was keen to commit to new terms.

"With how much I love playing at Everton, I was delighted to get the chance to sign another contract," Coleman told the club's official website.

"I've been at Everton five years now and I love everything around the place. I love working with all the players, the staff, the coaching staff - everything. It was a very happy decision to make.

"With the manager and some of the players we have, we're going to the right places."
