Robin Olsen has been a hit at Everton since his loan arrival and says he wants to remain at the club next season.

The 31-year-old goalkeeper has provided strong competition for Jordan Pickford and has played the last two games while the Englishman has been injured.

Olsen told the club’s official website that him and his family feel settled in Merseyside and he wants to extend his stay.

“Here, I knew it would be fast but it is faster than I thought. I like it, I am big, there are more duels in England, it fits me.”

“As a family, we have moved around and feel we are in a good place now. We want to stay, but it is not me who decides. I can only cross my fingers and see what the club says.

“We are very happy, so why not stay until it is time to move home to Sweden? That is what we would choose.

“It is easy to say that – but everything needs to be sorted out.”

Olsen may well establish himself as Everton’s first choice between now and the end of the season.

He’s the man in possession of the shirt and shone against Leeds in midweek – when a second half triple save was the highlight.

It’s tough to see a reason right now that Everton wouldn’t want to extend his stay at Goodison.

So hopefully a solution can be found in the summer which suits all parties.
