Everton fans ecstatic as Dominic Calvert-Lewin signs new five-year contract

Dominic Calvert-Lewin has signed a new contract at Goodison Park which ties the Everton striker down on Merseyside until 2025.

The Toffees' No.9 has put pen to paper on a five-year deal as a reward for his best season yet in a blue shirt.

The 22-year-old is fighting to secure a place in Gareth Southgate's England squad ahead of Euro 2020 this summer.

And his year has already got even better after an avalanche of goals of late as he has now agreed fresh terms with Everton.

Calvert-Lewin has made clear to Carlo Ancelotti he can be his first-choice frontman long term, having netted 10 goals in the last 13 Premier League games.

“This is a very proud day. It has been enjoyable for me since the start at Everton and I am enjoying every day coming into training and every minute on the football pitch,” Calvert-Lewin told Everton's official website.

“But I am well aware of how much I need to improve and how much better I can do.

"I love where I am and the position I am in and I love playing for Everton Football Club."
