Seamus Coleman has ended all the rumours of a move to Manchester United by signing a new five-year-deal with Everton.
The 25-year-old Republic Of Ireland full-back was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United prior to the sacking of former Everton manager David Moyes.
The British tabloids love a good transfer rumour and made Coleman the subject of their latest rumour-mill offering.
Not that many Evertonians were buying it.
In fact back in March we wrote: 'following Baines signing a new contract with Everton, the tabloids need a new target and that target is now Republic of Ireland international Coleman.....
.....until he of course signs a new contract which is expected to be completed in the summer.'
That new contract has now been signed, with Coleman committing to Everton until 2019.
'You hear rumours and obviously your friends and so on read about it, but that's the game we're in - it's full of speculation. I never thought about anything else but staying and I'm happy to sign the new contract. More than happy.' Coleman told evertonfc.com.
He continued: 'With how much I love playing at Everton, I was delighted to get the chance to sign another contract, I've been at Everton five years now and I love everything around the place. I love working with all the players, the staff, the coaching staff - everything. It was a very happy decision to make.
'With the manager and some of the players we have, we're going to the right places.'
