BREAKING: Richarlison signs a new contract at Everton

Richarlison has inked a new contract at Everton that will see him remain at Goodison Park till the summer of 2024, 16 months after signing for the club from Watford.

The 22-year-old had just under four years remaining in the previous contract he signed when joining Everton from Watford for £40m in 2018.

The new deal is in effect a 12-month extension on improved terms which is believed to be a move by Everton to fend of interested clubs including Manchester United who were reported to be after his services. 

In an interview with Everton TV, Richarlison expressed his delight at signing a new contract, "I intend to be here a long time. This was the club which gave me the opportunity to show my football.

"It was here I managed to get a place in the Brazil national team and it was here I have scored lots of goals in the Premier League.

"The Club trusts me and I trust them. The supporters have a lot of affection for me and I try to give back all this affection as much as possible on the pitch. I go out and put my life on the line for them.

"I try to sweat blood and tears for this club. I intend to continue honoring the shirt and making the fans happy. And I hope they continue singing my name."
