Midfielder Tim Cahill has signed a new four-year deal that is set to keep him at Everton until 2014.

The 30-year-old Australia international had two years remaining on his previous contract but Everton were keen to secure his long-term future.

The World Cup-bound midfielder has scored 56 goals in 209 games since arriving from Millwall in 2004.

Cahill told the club website before the end of the season: "The chairman knows my thoughts, I will sign for life."

He added: "He knows my thoughts on what I love about this club. I respect everyone so much and hopefully I am here for a long time."
