Toffees agree new deal with starlet Rodwell

Teenage midfielder Jack Rodwell has agreed a new five-year deal with Everton and is likely to sign his contract by the weekend. The 17-year-old scored his first goal for the Toffees in Sunday's 3-1 FA Cup victory at home to Aston Villa.

Rodwell, who made his debut aged 16 in the UEFA Cup in December 2007, has made 13 first-team appearances this season, seven of which were from the start.

"Just to play for Everton is an honour, but to get the goal, I am made up," the academy product told EvertonTV after yesterday's strike.

"I'm glad it's out of the way, hopefully there's more to come.

"My ambitions are just to keep working hard and when I do get on to make an impression."
