Everton defender Luke Garbutt has committed his long-term future to the club by signing a five-year contract.

Garbutt, who joined Everton's youth set-up from Leeds in 2009, has been linked with Premier League newcomers Bournemouth this summer.
The left-back made eight starts for the Toffees last season, four of which were in the Europa League, serving as deputy for Leighton Baines.
