HOWARD SIGNS TO 2016
Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard has signed a new contract with the club that will keep him at Goodison Park till 2016.
Tim Howard has been one of the prudent signings Everton manager David Moyes has made since taking over at Everton for a decade ago.
Even though Tim Howard was not regarded to be one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier league during his time at Manchester United, David Moyes has transformed him into exactly that in the last few seasons. As a result, Tim Howard has now signed a new contract with the club. This comes as a major boost for Everton, who have been struggling to keep hold of their better players like Mikel Arteta.
The 33-year-old Tim Howard joined Everton back in 2006 and has made more than 250 appearances for Everton. He is regarded as one of the consistent players in the Premier league. David Moyes has had to deal with a number of problems in terms of the transfers in other areas of the pitch, but thanks to the performances of Tim Howard, he has been able to concentrate less on the goalkeeping department. Speaking on the occasion after signing his new contract, Tim Howard has said that he believes he can play into the 40s.
“It’s a place that is home for me. When you have a really good relationship in life and both sides are eager to continue and keep that going, it’s a no-brainer. This hasn’t been a knockdown, drawn-out type of negotiation with meetings or anything like that. They were very happy to keep me here and I was very, very happy to stay,” Howard said on the occasion of his new contract. A number of goalkeepers from the United States have been extremely successful in the Premier league and Tim Howard is one of them.
