Seamus Coleman is reportedly set to sign a new deal with Everton ahead of his contract expiry.
Fabrizio Romano has reported that Coleman will put pen to paper on a new one-year deal, with documents being prepared and an agreement ‘imminent’.
The defender’s current contract was set to run out at the end of June, before the club confirmed they had offered him fresh terms.
The news comes a month after questions were raised about his future when he was stretchered off the pitch during the Toffees’ 2-2 draw with Leicester City.
However, Coleman will now extend his 14-year stay at Goodison Park after reaching a staggering 400 appearances for the club in February.
Everton also confirmed that Tom Davies and Andy Lonergan have been offered new deals, though there has been no fresh update on the latter two.

Everton will rely on Seamus Coleman’s leadership
Everton fans were left heartbroken when Coleman was left needing knee surgery after their clash with Leicester City last month. It was believed that his career could be over.
However, the news that the Toffees captain will return to Goodison Park for another reason will delight the Merseyside faithful.
Sean Dyche will look to bolster their defence this summer and Coleman could be left with limited appearances once he returns from injury. However, it is his leadership and experience that will play a huge role in the dressing room.
The Republic of Ireland international was a huge influence on the squad as they narrowly avoided relegation last season and his position at the club will be just as instrumental until the day he decides to hang up his boots.
While Coleman is likely to leave next summer, fans will certainly appreciate another year of his presence and he will eventually leave Goodison Park as a legend at the club. Thankfully, that time is yet to come.
