LONDON (AP) — American goalkeeper Tim Howard has signed a two-year contract extension to stay with Everton until 2018.

Everton announced the deal on Thursday.

The 35-year-old has been at Goodison Park since 2006 following stints with the New York/New Jersey MetroStars (1998-03) and Manchester United (2003-07).

Everton manager Roberto Martinez says "on top of his goalkeeping, it's his overall demeanor and personality in the dressing room. He is a strong leader."
