The England under-21 international has become an integral part of David Moyes’ team, and has been linked with a move to Manchester United in the past.
After reaching the century mark for games in the 3-1 defeat against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend, Rodwell has stated that he feels it is the first achievement of many at Goodison Park.
“It was a proud moment for me as I had always dreamt of just playing one game for Everton, let alone 100,” he told the side’s official website.
“Now I just want to carry on and play another 100 and then 100 more. When you say the number it does seem to have happened very quickly, but if you look at it I could have played even more by now.
“Still, it’s a great landmark to reach and I just want to keep on playing and make as many appearances for Everton as possible,” he stated.
The Toffees have had an inconsistent start to the season, and will look to get back on track on Sunday, as they take on Fulham at Craven Cottage.
