'If It's Football, It's Vital'

New deal for Distin

It's been pretty much expected, but it's always nice to hear when a deal is officially completed and that's now the case for Sylvain Distin.

At the tender age of 35, the Frenchman was coming to the end of his current Everton deal, but has been in talks regarding a contract extension for a while.

As expected, mainly down to his age, he has now put pen to paper on a one year extension, which will run through the remainder of this season until the end of the 2013/14 season.

His experience is often key for David Moyes, but the fact that he doesn't play like a 35-year-old also helps. He hasn't lost his pace and he is still a key member of the squad, so it's a no brainer in terms of why Everton want to keep him on and for Distin he's enjoying his football at Goodison Park so there's no reason to leave.

"I`m happy here. It`s a great club - I`ve said that from day one, I didn`t have any reason to leave and the Club wanted me to stay, so I`m happy that we could figure it out and that I`m staying for another season. Distin told EvertonTV.

He continued: "It`s not only about football and it`s definitely not just about money. At my age it`s not the most important thing because you want to enjoy your life as well.

"That has happened to me at this Club - I`m happy and so are my family. There is a great atmosphere in the dressing room too.

"We work hard but it is great fun as well. For me that`s what I need because I want to enjoy my last few years of football."
