Ever­ton de­fender Michael Keane has signed a new five-year con­tract. The 27-yearold, who has be­come an ever-present un­der man­ager Carlo Ancelotti, cel­e­brated his Eng­land re­call by com­mit­ting his fu­ture to the Mersey­side club un­til 2025. “My best years are def­i­nitely ahead of me,” the for­mer Burn­ley de­fender said. (below) made more than 300 ap­pear­ances for Wolves af­ter join­ing from League of Ire­land side Bo­hemi­ans in 2010. He said: “My time at Wolves was fan­tas­tic, I haven’t got a bad word to say about the whole club at all. But now I just feel that com­ing here is go­ing to take my game and my ca­reer to the next level.”

Gor­don Tay­lor’s de­par­ture as chief ex­ec­u­tive of the Pro­fes­sional Foot­ballers’ As­so­ci­a­tion has moved a sig­nif­i­cant step closer af­ter a three-per­son se­lec­tion panel, com­pris­ing Gary Neville as the in­de­pen­dent chair, was tasked with help­ing re­cruit four new non-ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tors. An in­de­pen­dent re­view into the PFA is also now un­der­stood to have been com­pleted. Those new di­rec­tors will be tasked with iden­ti­fy­ing Tay­lor’s re­place­ment.
