  2. In August 2014, he agreed on a contract extension with Everton to extend his contract with the club to 2019. The new contract deal also increased his earning to around £30,000 a week.

  4. In April 2015, he scored his first premier league goal for Everton as he headed in his side’s second goal in their 3-0 victory over Manchester United.
  5. In the summer of 2015, he was actively pursued by Jose Mourinho‘s Chelsea. Everton reportedly rejected three bids (£20 million, £26 million, and £30 million) from the London based club.
