Steven Naismith signs new three-year contract with Everton

Steven Naismith has scored six goals for Everton this season.

Everton forward Steven Naismith has signed a three-year contract extension to keep him at Goodison Park until 2019.

The Scotland international moved to Merseyside on a free transfer in 2012 after leaving Scottish club Rangers.

He started his career in Scotland with Kilmarnock, then spent five years at Rangers before David Moyes signed him for the Toffees.

But he says he has felt "more wanted" at the club recently, having established himself as a regular under current boss Roberto Martinez.

Everton players tell their worst Christmas cracker jokes

As we approach Christmas, the Everton squad have donned their finest dodgy festive jumpers to reel off their favourite cracker jokes -- each more groan-inducing than the last.

TOE POKE: FOOTBALL FUNNIES

- The Wall: Newspaper's De Gea tribute
- Cheeky t-shirt: Man Utd fans poke fun at Gerrard
- Mud, glorious mud: Club World Cup farce
- Foot flap: West Brom player's gruesome injury
- Wenger is Frozen: Funny Arsenal manager parody
- Pecs appeal: Crouch copies Ronaldo
- Him again: Crouch goes crowd surfing

- World Cup bonanza: Gotze's boot sells for millions

While the likes of Leighton Baines, Steven Naismith and Roberto Martinez are all suitably appalled by the punchlines on offer, Leon Osman is in his absolute element as he bangs out zinger after dreadful zinger.

Steven Naismith: Everton's Ross Barkley needs time to grow

Everton manager Roberto Martinez was pleased with the central midfield partnership between Ross Barkley and Muhamed Besic, as Everton claimed three points against QPR.

Steven Naismith has warned not to expect too much too soon from Ross Barkley and insisted Everton's young talent might not be consistent for several years.

Barkley played for England in the World Cup and the midfielder, now 21, scored a spectacular goal in Monday's 3-1 win over QPR.

But Scotland international Naismith, who was also among the scorers, believes Barkley cannot be expected to reach his peak until he has much more experience.

He said: "It's the normal kind of British mentality where he...

Tim Howard to soften stance on Brad Friedel in new book

The ESPN FC team discuss Tim Howard's statements that Brad Friedel did not try to block his move to Manchester United in 2003, but Craig Burley believes the facts should have been sorted before the publish of his book.

Everton and U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard said on Tuesday via Twitter statement that he will strike all future references in his new autobiography to allegations that compatriot and fellow No. 1 Brad Friedel "actively tried to block" his 2003 move from Major League Soccer to Manchester United.

Just prior to the publication of Howard's new book, "The Keeper," Friedel denied Howard's accusation, telling ESPNFC.com that he never "wrote a letter of negativity toward Tim Howard to anybody in this world."
