Maarten Stekelenburg signs new Everton deal

Everton will be looking to have a better Premier League campaign this season after enduring a disappointing one last year.

The Toffees found themselves near the foot of the table for much of the campaign after spending heavily in the summer, with expectations for the side to challenge for a place in Europe.

However, things did not go to plan for the Goodison Park outfit and Marco Silva will be looking to ensure his side get off to a better start this August.

The new manager has not made a number of signings yet, although he did bring Richarlison from Watford in a deal thought to be worth around £50million and has seen a couple of last year’s additions leave the club already.

However, one man that he has decided to keep on Merseyside is Maarten Stekelenburg, with the club confirming the goalkeeper has agreed to a new deal that will run until June 2020.

The Verdict:

The 35-year-old has plenty of experience of playing football at the highest level, having featured in the 2010 World Cup final with the Netherlands.

The Holland international is expected to remain as a backup to Jordan Pickford, however, he would certainly be useful for Everton.

He struggled with injuries last season, in a year where Pickford shone for both club and country, however, he could benefit the young ‘keeper.
