U.S. keeper Howard extends Everton deal through 2016
LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND | U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard has extended his contract at Everton, tying him to the Premier League club until 2016.
Howard, 33, has played 256 games for Everton since joining from Manchester United in 2006, initially on loan before signing a permanent deal in February 2007.
Howard’s consistent performances for the northwest club have helped him keep the goalkeeper jersey for the U.S. national team. He played last week in the historic 1-0 win in Italy. He has played 72 times for the U.S.
