LONDON (AP) -- American goalkeeper Tim Howard has signed a two-year contract extension to stay with Everton until 2018.
Everton announced the deal on Thursday.
The 35-year-old has been at Goodison Park since 2006 following stints with the New York/New Jersey MetroStars (1998-03) and Manchester United (2003-07).
Everton manager Roberto Martinez says ''on top of his goalkeeping, it's his overall demeanor and personality in the dressing room. He is a strong leader.''
