There had been doubts over whether or not he would sign a new deal at the end of his previous contract, but Garbutt said that he is no doubt that Everton will do great things and that he wants to be part of it.
“It’s an honour to commit my long-term future to Everton,” Garbutt said.
“I’ve been made to feel very welcome at the Club since I signed my scholarship six years ago.
“Over the years, I have grown to have an affinity with the Club and I feel a sense of belonging here.
“Under the Manager, the future looks bright and positive and I want to be a part of that. It is a great Club to be a part of and the staff and supporters have been great with me from day one.
“Last season was great for me in continuing my development, my personal highlight being the Europa League adventure as I gained a lot of experience in those games playing against top quality opposition.
“Everything we went through last season and the experience we gained as a group will only make us stronger as a team ahead of the new season.
“And with all the young players we’ve got such as Rom, Ross and Stonesy – all of them key players, too, the future of the Club couldn’t be more promising.
“If we can continue to build the team, then we can go on and achieve special things together, every one of us as players will have no doubts about that.”
