Everton announced on Tuesday that 21-year-old defender Matty Foulds had signed a new one-year contract with the Toffees.
Foulds’ previous deal at Goodison Park was due to expire this summer but he will spend at least one more season with the Merseyside outfit.
The defender was part of the club’s double-winning Under-23 side last term.
And he has now been rewarded with a new contract.
Foulds – a 2016 arrival from Bury – is yet to make his first-team debut for Marco Silva’s side and it is unclear whether he is in the plans of the Portuguese.
However, penning an extension is always a step in the right direction and Foulds will now be hoping to continue his development during the 2019-20 campaign.
And that led to a number of Everton fans responding to the contract news – a selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
