Davies Delighted to Sign New Five-Year Everton Deal

tomdaviesTom Davies is eager to kick on and play his way into Ronald Koeman’s first-team after signing a new five-year deal with Everton.

The 18-year-old put pen to paper on a new contract that ties him to the club until June 2021.

And the midfielder is keen to continue his development after breaking into the first-team setup towards the end of the last campaign.

He told Everton’s official site:  “It’s great motivation knowing I’ll be here for five years and that I can really push on and hopefully develop to become a really good player for the team and go on to do really well.

“Coming back from the off season and going straight back with the first team has been a good insight for me into what’s required of me for the season and to be around the players, play as much as I have and train with them, it’s been vital for my progression as a player.

“I just want to become a regular first, that’s something I am going to work towards and hopefully with the help of the staff and learning from other players I can get there.”

Davies, who has featured in three of Everton’s four 2016/17 pre-season friendlies, is the nephew of former Blues title winner Alan Whittle.

And, when quizzed on whether he has much to live up to due to his uncle winning the then-Division One trophy, Davies stated that his only desire was to continue to learn his trade at the club he loves.

He added: “It has been a dream but I haven’t really thought about it that much until it’s actually come true, I haven’t got too carried away.

“But the day it’s come, it’s unbelievable to actually have signed for five years and it’s really taken me aback to think where I’ve come from as well.

“It’s amazing and a pleasure to have signed again on another deal, my second deal with the Club and I’m just looking forward to having the next five years here.

“The next opportunity I get to play, particularly at Goodison, I’m sure I’ll be up for it, ready and I just can’t wait for that moment.”
