Jack Rodwell spurns interest to sign new deal

Jack Rodwell has ended speculation of a possible move away from Everton by signing a new five-year contract at Goodison Park.

Rodwell, 19, enjoyed a productive season with Everton as he made 17 Premier League starts and scored two goals, including a composed finish in a 3-1 defeat of Manchester United in February.

United were believed to be one of the clubs interested in the England youth international, along with Arsenal and Chelsea, but Rodwell has shunned outside interest to remain with Everton.

Rodwell, who can play in defence or midfield, only signed a new contract in March 2009 but has been rewarded with a pay rise by David Moyes following his promising season on Merseyside.

"I'm very pleased that Jack has signed an improved contract because it re-affirms Everton's ambition to challenge the top clubs," Moyes said. "I want to keep all the players we have here to make us stronger in the coming season."

It is reported that Rodwell will be paid £30,000 a week up until 2015, and he joins Tim Cahill and young defender Seamus Coleman in signing new contracts in recent days.

Rodwell said he had never taken any notice of speculation about his future and had always been committed to Everton.

"I'm perfectly happy at the club and I'm very happy to be signing a new deal," he said. "I have enjoyed every minute of being at this club and I try not to look atspeculation that much, I just try to play my best on the pitch."
