Hitzlsperger delight at Everton stay

Thomas Hitzlsperger will be remaining with Everton until the end of the season after the German agreed to extend his contract at Goodison Park.

The 30-year-old who made the move to Goodison Park after a successful trial spell earlier this season has been out-of-contract for the past couple of weeks, but has now penned a new deal for the remainder of the current 2012/13 campaign.

The former German international has made seven appearances since joining the club in October and with Darron Gibson continuing to struggle with injuries he will provide decent cover for David Moyes during the second half of the season.

Hitzlsperger also received interest from German Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt while out of contract but it was always clear that Hitzlsperger favoured the chance to remain in the Premier League over returning to Germany.

'I'm delighted to be here until the end of the season and I've always said it since I've been here, I've really enjoyed my time playing amongst these players and playing for this Club. he told evertonfc.com.

He continued: 'It has been hugely enjoyable, we've been successful and hopefully at the end of the season we're up there in the top four playing for the Champions League.

'When I was out in the summer I thought maybe I'd played my last game already. Now I'm back at a very, very good level in the Premier League, playing for a huge club and it's so enjoyable.'
