Everton boss David Moyes has confirmed that unsung hero Leon Osman will be offered a new long term contract at Goodison Park.
Osman has once again impressed for the Toffees this season and even earned an overdue England call up from Roy Hodgson.
The 31-year-old celebrated 10 years since his debut yesterday having featured for the Merseyside club on January 12th 2003 against Tottenham Hotspur.
A fans favourite, Osman appeared to go unnoticed for years with his hard work and skill being massively underrated by fans and pundits.
However with the Blues now flying in the Premier League, Osman is part of one of the most effective midfields in the country and is rightly set for a new deal.
Moyes is a huge admirer of the wide man and is delighted that the club are rewarding him with a much deserved contract that could keep him at Everton for the remainder of his career.
“We are giving him a new contract because he is such a valuable player to us,” Moyes told the Daily Mirror.
“If he stays free of injury, he can go on for some years yet.
“There are different types of players coming into the Premier League now, and it is a far less physical place – and that helps. He could survive in the other style of football and have a career, but now he is thriving.”
