Barkley rewarded

Ross Barkley has been rewarded for his past season with a new four-year-deal at Everton.

It's been a brilliant year for the 20-year-old, who has enjoyed a coming of age season for Everton during the last campaign.

During the last season under David Moyes, Barkley was left frustrated with a stop-start season.

He played for Everton in the Capital One Cup, before he went out on loan to Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship by September.

He played 13 times during a two month spell scoring four goals.

But by November he was back at Goodison Park, making two sub appearances in December before going out on loan again this time to Championship club Leeds United.

He was there for a month, making four appearances before another return to Everton. He ended the season with five Premier League appearances including two starts, but it was under Roberto Martinez last season where he really began to flourish.

By September, 12 months on from his loan move to Sheffield Wednesday, Barkley was in the England squad and earning a cap for his 60th minute sub appearance.

He made two more appearances for England in November and completed 41 games for both club and country before being selected for Roy Hodgson's England squad for the World Cup in Brazil.

It might not have been the campaign England wanted, returning home without a victory, but Barkley would have grown from the experience.

And now with a new deal at Goodison Park, Everton and Barkley can continue to progress this season.

'As soon as I got told about it, I knew I was going to sign, It means everything, signing the new contract. It is a dream to have been playing for Everton all my life and today is a great thing for me. he told evertonfc.com

He continued: 'I am settled in at Everton, this is the Club I love. I see it as my home, I never think of anything away from Goodison.

'Putting pen-to-paper is great and now I want to focus on doing everything right on the pitch and that will hopefully lead to bigger and better things here.'
